This is a Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Zucchini Muffin that tastes better than one from a bakery. In this chocolate chip zucchini muffin, there is plenty of chocolate and chocolate flavour. I should have called this gluten-free muffin double chocolate muffin 🙂 The muffin batter is made with pure cocoa powder, which adds that fresh chocolate flavour. 

Did you know pure cocoa powder is packed with powerful antioxidants? Also, I have added plenty of chocolate chips. But there is more! A delicious zucchini, my favourite squash in baking. The zucchini adds nutritional value, cuts back on fats and keeps the chocolate chip muffins extra moist. I promise you will not be able to stop at one because they taste like the best chocolate cake, except with added health benefits!
