Gluten-free Chocolate Zucchini Muffins

As the summer growing season approaches, I am looking forward to harvesting vegetables from our small garden. We always plant zucchini, and even though we typically only have one plant, we usually have MORE than enough zucchini to feed one family.

I started making these zucchini muffins a couple of years ago, much to the delight of my husband and children. They are so chocolaty, they almost pass for chocolate cake. We don’t eat them for breakfast (unless Mom’s not looking), but they do make a tasty afternoon treat.
