Chocolate Zucchini Protein Muffins

I decided I am going to make a weekly series of different protein desserts! Check out the last one here. (Strawberry Banana Protein Muffins). Mainly because I recently bought a bunch of Cellucor protein from bodybuilding.com and want to test out the different flavors. They were having a buy 2 get 1 free sale,  so I was able to get three different flavors for $60 rather than the usual $30-45 for just one at GNC or vitamin shoppe.  I bought cake batter, mint chocolate chip, and cinnamon swirl.  So, stay tuned for muffins or other goodies using those flavors.

Today I used chocolate because I thought that sounded the best with zucchini, and I really wanted to use zucchini.  I have a few other zucchini recipes, like paleo zucchini bread or my non-paleo zucchini muffins, that always remind me of this time of the year.

Ingredients:

  • 2 C. Shredded Zucchini
  • 1 C. Plain Greek Yogurt
  • 1-1/2 C. Rolled Oats, turned into flour using the Nutri-Bullet

  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/2 t. Baking Soda
  • 1-1/2 t. Baking Powder
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • Optional- 2 packs stevia, and chocolate chips

Directions:

  1. Shred your zucchini and set aside
  2. If you are using oats, use your nutri-bullet to make a fine flour or use almond flour :)
  3. Mix together all dry ingredients: oat flour, protein, bs, bp, salt, and stevia
  4. Add in eggs, vanilla, and yogurt.  Blend it all together.
  5. Add in zucchini and hand mix until combined.  At this point you can add raisins, chocolate, etc.  I just sprinkled dairy free/soy free chocolate chips on top of a few
  6. Spray pan or use cupcake liners and fill each about 3/4 of the way
  7. Bake at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes.
  8. Enjoy :)
