I love the flavor of chocolate and zucchini together. Love chocolate zucchini loaf and I love this recipe for muffins... hope you all enjoy.

If you like the flavors of chocolate and almond together, you'll love this moist and tender zucchini muffin recipe. The almonds really make the difference - extract adds flavor and slivered ones give the muffins a little crunch. Once baked, the muffin tops have a nice sugary crust. A great recipe to try when zucchini is abundant. They'll be delicious for breakfast, snack or a dessert. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
