Zucchini Gluten Free Chocolate Muffin Recipe

You are welcome. Yes, pretty much all I have to say about this recipe is you are welcome. Believe me, you are going to thank me for this one.

I have been testing, trying, researching, and failing on making a good muffin recipe that is made out of all natural ingredients and that is still delicious. Then, yesterday, I tested another recipe; however, I had a good feeling about this one. For some reason, I just knew it was going to work. When I took the muffins out of the oven they were still fluffy!!! Yes, if you have tried making a healthy real food muffin you know that most of them come out flat, or as hard as a rock. Not these bad boys. These were fluffy and soft, gewie and delicious!

After I let them cool down I took a bite, and my taste buds were in taste bud heaven. Is it too much to say little taste bud angels were singing? Seriously just try them.

***note, these are so much better cool than they are warm. Your first instinct is to eat them while they are got because who doesn't love hot chocolaty things, but for some reason these are best completely cooled off.***

This recipe makes 9 servings.
