It’s that time of year where gardens are overflowing with zucchini, and we’re searching for easy ways to use it all up.

Not only do they only dirty one bowl, but they also contain chocolate! Filled with mini chocolate chips and unsweetened baking cocoa, these muffins are sure to cure any chocolate craving!

We like using mini chocolate chips so you get some chocolate chips in each bite without using a lot. However, you can also use regular chocolate chips if that’s what you have on hand.

Two whole cups of shredded zucchini (that you can’t taste at all, promise!) and yogurt keep these muffins moist and tender for several days (though they may not last that long!).

Great for a quick breakfast, sweet snack, or even a lighter dessert, these muffins are perfect for even the strongest zucchini skeptic!

Tips for Making Bakery Style Double Chocolate Zucchini Muffins

  • You can use either mini chocolate chips or regular. You can also switch up the type of chocolate for a sweeter (milk chocolate) or richer (dark chocolate) flavor.
  • I’ve listed using either white whole wheat flour or all-purpose flour for these muffins. You can use whole wheat flour, but you will notice a change in texture and flavor.
  • I like using whole milk yogurt or low-fat plain yogurt, but not fat-free, for this recipe for the best flavor and texture.
  • Shred the zucchini onto a clean kitchen towel and then lightly squeeze the zucchini in the towel. You don’t want to squeeze out all of the moisture.
