Chocolate Zucchini Muffins (Gluten-free)

I have a great thing for you to make with all of your zucchini.There is something wonderful about the combination of zucchini and chocolate combined. I love how soft and delicious these are. I put some extras in the freezer in zip locks. It was so wonderful to take them out of the freezer and heat them up and enjoy a yummy snack. Every since I made them last weekend I have been wanting to make them again. So Good!!! They always have zucchini in the store.

1 teaspoon of vanilla
1/3 cup of oil (I used grapeseed oil)
2/3 cup of honey
2 eggs
2 cups of grated zucchini
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 cups + 2 tablespoons quinoa flour (You could replace w/  a different wholegrain flour)
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 cup dark chocolate chips, chopped up

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl beat together vanilla, oil, honey, eggs, and zucchini. Set aside.
2. In a small bowl pour in all the dry ingredients and stir with a wire whisk. Fold in the chocolate chips.
3. Combine the two mixtures together into one bowl. Stir until just combined.
4. Pour into greased muffin pan. Place in preheated oven. Bake about 15 minutes or until done.
5. Cool a few minutes and then take out of the muffin pan and cool on cooling rack.
* You could put in a square pan or bread pan instead. You will just have to watch the cooking time a little closer. Remove when done.
Makes 12 muffins
