chocolate zucchini muffins

It’s zucchini season in Nova Scotia, so we received a few in our CSA share this week. I was really excited to try to make some vegan gluten-free zucchini bread or muffins, and these turned out great!

I adapted the recipe slightly from here:

  • 1 cup gluten-free all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 3 teaspoons chia seeds mixed with 6 tablespoons hot water (mix and allow to form a gel while grating zucchini)
  • 1 1/2 cups zucchini, washed and finely grated (one medium-sized zucchini should be enough)
  • 1/4 cup apple sauce
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 350ºF and prepare muffin pan. In a large bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and sugars. In a medium bowl, combine all other ingredients. Combine all ingredients together and transfer the batter into the muffin pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Makes 14 muffins.
