  • 2 zucchini, grated and strained
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 ⅓ cup light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespooon vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup melted butter
  • 2 ¾ cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (optional)


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and spray a muffin tin with baking spray.
  • Grate both zucchini with the skin on. Place the grated zucchini in a fine mesh sieve over a bowl and press down on the zucchini to extract as much liquid as possible. Discard the juice and place the dried zucchini in a large mixing bowl.
  • Add the eggs, sugar, and vanilla to the mixing bowl with the zucchini and stir, breaking up the eggs well.
  • Stir in the melted butter.
  • Add the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt to the bowl and stir into a thick batter.
  • Stir in the chocolate chips, if using.
  • Scoop the batter into the prepared muffin tin, filling each muffin cup to the top.
  • Bake for about 25 minutes. The tops of the muffins will be golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center of the muffin will come out cleanly.
  • Let the muffins cool for about 10 minutes in the pan and then flip them out onto a metal cooling rack. Cool for another 10 minutes then enjoy!


  • Try adding 1 cup of dried cranberries, raisins, or chopped walnuts to the muffins in place of chocolate chips.
