Preheat your oven to 350℉ and line a muffin tin with 9 liners.
Take shredded zucchini and put it in the middle of a clean dish towel or large paper towel. Wrap up the zucchini and press down to help squeeze out the moisture. Set aside.

Fold in shredded zucchini.
Then fold in chocolate chips.
Portion out the batter into the prepared muffin tin and top with extra chocolate chips if desired.
