Choc Zucchini Protein Muffins

This snack will be sure to satisfy your 4pm sweet cravings while also getting in your greens at the same time! Win-win!

Zucchini is a great vegetable to bake with because it has relatively no taste and absorbs all the flavours it is combined with – in this case, chocolate! And because it is also a vegetable made up of mostly water, it makes these muffins super dense and moist! Which is how a good muffin should be in my opinion.

The recipe is:

  • Dairy free (if you use dairy free choc chips)
  • Gluten free
  • Refined sugar free

Enjoy! xx
