Vegan Chocolate Chip Zucchini Muffins

Sharing is caring!

I LOVE zucchini just about everything, but especially any sweetbreads. These vegan chocolate chip zucchini muffins check all the boxes in deliciousness with a little bit of vegetable added in.

In fact, my VERY picky 6 yo loved these, until he saw some green specs. He even stated these were the best muffins I had ever made, which is saying a lot because he loves all the muffins I make.

But those darn green specs made him lose his love really fast. Which was quite annoying. It can be frustrating when our minds can trick us so easily that we instantly don’t like something insanely delicious.

So, I had to check this out on some neighbor kids and friends’ kids to make sure that they could handle the green specs. And guess what, my kid was the only one who threw a fit. Imagine that?

All the other kids loved them. Ugh, my child.

These vegan chocolate chip zucchini muffins are SO good, so don’t let my child ruin your fun.

If muffins aren’t your thing I have an insanely delish zucchini bread recipe right here.

Can I replace the apple sauce with the same amount of mashed bananas? Don't have any apple sauce in the house.
