I love you
Won’t you tell me your name…
The name.
The name of these Double Chocolate Zucchini Muffins has been the subject of a bit of a debate between TeenSonMark and I. When I was taking these pictures, I put a zucchini in the background for one or two shots. Mark said something really wise like,
“No one is going to read a blog that talks about zucchini, Mom. Seriously, let me advise you.”
(I am not kidding….he says those words all the time!)
“If I were looking for recipes and I came across the word zucchini or any pictures of that green monster of a vegetable
I would NOT read that blog.”
And though it pains me to loose any teenage boys that may be following this blog…..
(chuckle, snort, like there are any….)
I opted to go with the zucchini.
Call me crazy, but I think you Moms and Dads out there 
might just
have a whole pile of zucchini to deal with and 
might just
appreciate this treasure of a recipe.
PS…..TeenSonMark ate no less than 7 of these muffins in one day.
That was wise.
They are fabulous!
Bring on the green monster of a vegetable.
Double Chocolate Zucchini Muffins  
Time: about 90 minutes
Yield: 30 muffins
Recipe from my sister in law Erin Jepsen
4 C flour
1 1/2 C sugar
1/2 C cocoa
1 t baking soda
1/2 t baking powder
3/4 t salt
1 t cinnamon
1/2 t nutmeg
1 1/2 C oil
1 1/2 C milk
3 eggs
2 t vanilla
2 C shredded zucchini
1 1/2 C semi sweet chocolate chips (the original recipe calls for only 1 C, but I added an extra 1/2 C……I can’t help myself, I’ve got a chocolate addiction, seriously.)
1. Mix the wet ingredients together in a bowl with a whisk. Add the zucchini to the wet ingredients.

2. Mix all of the dry ingredients in a separate bowl with a wooden spoon.

3. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and stir, just until combined. Fold in the chocolate chips and you are ready for the muffin pan baby.
4. Line your muffin tin with cupcake holders and fill a bit more than 2/3 of the way full. 

5. Bake at 350 for 17 minutes.

There you have it….
the green monster of a vegetable in all it’s glory.
