Low Fat Zucchini Chocolate Muffins

My friend Elana gave me this recipe and she was right that the kids can make them but they are good enough for adults to enjoy as well. At only 92 calories each these are worth making.


1/3 cup boiling water
2 cups shredded zucchini
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup cocoa
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup vegetable oil (canola is good!)
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In large bowl, pour boiling water over zucchini. Add all other ingredients and stir just until well combined. Line muffin pans with paper muffin cups, and use a 1/4 cup measure to pour batter into cups. Bake for 30 minutes. Yields 18 muffins.

Number of Servings: 18
