A new week calls for a new muffin recipe, am I right?!? What started out as a basic paleo chocolate chip muffin recipe became a super bad ass & low sugar PALEO CHOCOLATE CHIP ZUCCHINI MUFFIN recipe, and before you go ewwwwwww, what’s zucchini doing in a muffin?! The answer is, it’s actually AMAZING. It adds a boatload of moisture (yep I said the M word), and it’s a brilliant way to sneak in those veg! I even sold Gavyn on them and y’all know he’s the world toughest critic! So let’s dooooooo this.

  1. Made these and they were super good. Used some chocolate pecan nut butter from ground up that threw it over the top..Ordered that when I tried your blueberry waffle cone nut butter!

    • Yum!! I love that nut butter, Nancy! Thank you so much for making this recipe, and for leaving such a kind review!

  2. Was this recipe supposed to have cinnamon??? If so — I didn’t see it in the instructions, although I could be missing it ??
