Zucchini Chocolate Chip Mini Muffins

I would have never combined chocolate and zucchini together, in a muffin no less, but THANK YOU to elena’s pantry for putting it together for me, with coconut flour!!! Icing on the cake!

Here’s the original recipe. My mods in [xxx]

These are wonderful treats. Really, easy and GOOD. And I cut down on the sugar so don’t feel bad about eating more than one. 🙂

Mini muffins are perfect snacks for kids as well as adults! Oh, and my grandbaby helped me cook them. You’ll see him in the slideshow.
