Healthy Chocolate & Zucchini Muffins

These healthy muffins are made of gluten-free millet flour, zucchini and chocolate.
You'll never taste the veggies!


You should definitely try this recipe for healthy and delicious chocolate zucchini muffins. They are so soft, moist and rich that  you will want more. We used here gluten-free millet flour because we wanted these muffins to be gluten-free but you can also use any other flour. Be sure to use quality dark chocolate and cocoa powder which will give rich chocolate taste to the muffins. A dash of amaretto liqueur is always a plus so we added it to the muffins. Grated zucchini make these muffins moist.
