This was my first attempt to make something for my sweet tooth, but a bit healthy as well. Very moist muffin with a brownie/sponge cake kind of texture. I may continue to tweek these a little. But definitely something I'd make again.

Ingredients

3/4 c
sugar
2
eggs
1/2 tsp
salt
2 tsp
baking powder
2 c
flour
1/3 c
dark chocolate cocoa powder
1/2 c
plain greek yogurt
3/4 c
milk
2 c
grated zucchini
1/2 c
chocolate chips
1/2 c
crushed walnuts

Step-By-Step

1Cream together sugar, eggs and salt. Then, mix in baking powder, flour and cocoa powder. Stir in greek yogurt (this will be thick). Pour in milk and stir. (This should be just slightly over cake batter consistency) Add grated zucchini and stir again. Moisture from zucchini will losen up the batter a bit.

2Add walnuts and chocolate chips of your choice.

3Spray muffin tins with non-stick spray. Fill large muffin wells about two thirds full. This will come close to filling 2 dozen wells. No muffin liners needed.

4Bake at 350 degrees for about 20-30 minutes. Varies on type of pan. Bake until toothpick comes out clean.

5Allow to cool and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
