Chocolate Banana Zucchini Muffins

Chocolate Banana Zucchini Muffins

In my quest for something chocolate, something muffin like, something with zucchini....I decided to make this muffin. It is moist and stays that way even over a couple of days. I found the recipe on allrecipes.com. You can click here for the original.

Chocolate Banana Zucchini Muffin
adapted from allrecipes.com (per the advise of one reviewer)

3 eggs
2 cups white sugar
1/2 cup oil
2 mashed bananas
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups grated zucchini
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease or line two 12 cup muffin tins.


In a large bowl beat the eggs. Beat in the sugar, oil and banana. Add the cocoa, vanilla, zucchini and stir well.


Stir in the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and cardamom. Mix until just moist.


Pour batter into prepared muffin tins filling 2/3 of the way full. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Cool.

  23. Your muffins look absolutely delicious, I can't wait to try them out! :)
    But before I do that, I need you to answer me a couple of questions ;)
    How many muffins does your recipe make? Are the muffins really soft? How long do they stay soft? Thank you very much for your answers! :)

    1. Depending on the size of your muffin pan it should make 18-24 muffins. They are soft and they stay moist - the banana and zucchini help them retain the moisture and they actually get moister as time goes by. I like to freeze half of them if I make them when its just two of us, but this is a recipe that I am well know for taking to work to share :) Hope you will enjoy!
