Chocolate Zucchini Muffins


1 1/2 c. flour
2/3 c. sugar
1/2 c. cocoa powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
1 egg
1/2 c. unsweetened applesauce
1/4 c. vegetable oil
1/2 c. milk, 1%
1 tsp. vanilla
1 medium size zucchini, grated
2/3 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line 18 muffin tins with paper liners (or spray with non stick cooking spray) and set aside. In a large bowl, combine the egg, applesauce, oil, milk, and vanilla together. Add in the zucchini. Stir in the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon and mix until everything is combined well. Add the chocolate chips and fold into the batter. Divide evenly among the prepared muffin tins and sprinkle with more chocolate chips or mini chocolate chips on top. Bake for 20-22 minutes until the tops bounce back when touched. Let cool on a wire rack, then store in an airtight container.
