Can you really have too many muffin recipes on hand? I most certainly don’t think so. Muffins are one of my top favorite things to make. There are endless flavor creations…blueberry lemon, pumpkin spice, banana oatmeal, apple cinnamon and chocolate zucchini. Just to name a few of my favorites. I can’t choose one. That would be like choosing my favorite child. No way, I love both of my babies way too much!
My (crazy good) gluten free vegan double chocolate zucchini muffins are super easy to make! They also take no time at all, which is why I’m entering them into the the Fast and Fresh Dairy Free Time Trials recipe contest, sponsored by So Delicious over at Go Dairy Free. There is cocoa in the batter and dairy free chocolate chips in every bite. I love in zucchini baked goods. It gives amazing moisture, plus you’re putting veggies in your muffins! My kids go crazy for this morning treat. It really is like having a cupcake for breakfast. I’m cool with that!
