Servings: 12 muffins
- 1 cup grated zucchini
- 2 cups white whole wheat flour
- ⅓ cup coconut sugar or granulated sugar
- 1½ teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 large egg
- ⅓ cup avocado oil or melted coconut oil or butter
- 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup plain yogurt
- ⅔ cup unsweetened applesauce can sub ripe mashed banana
- 1 cup diced strawberries
- ⅓ cup chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 375°F and grease or line a 12-cup muffin tin.
Place grated zucchini in the middle of a paper towel or clean dish cloth. Wrap it up and press to remove as much moisture as possible. Set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, coconut sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk the egg, oil, vanilla, yogurt, and applesauce together until combined. Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients. Stir until just combined, being careful not to over mix. Batter will be thick.
Fold in the strawberries, drained zucchini, and chocolate chips. Again, don't over mix.
Portion the batter into prepared muffin tins, filling to the top. Sprinkle more chocolate chips on top if desired.
Bake for 22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of a muffin comes out clean.
Remove from oven and allow to cool for at least 15 minutes before eating. If they seem soft, they will firm up as they cool. For best results, let them cool entirely.Allow muffins to cool completely before storing in an air-tight container in your fridge for about 4 days.
