Whole-Grain Chocolate Zucchini Muffins – Gluten-free, Dairy-free & Nut-free

Whole-Grain Chocolate Zucchini Muffins - Gluten-free, Dairy-free & Nut-free

After sharing my guide for gluten-free flour and starches last week, I wanted to create a yummy baked good that you guys could easily make your own, by using your very own all-purpose gluten-free flour blend! I decided to go with a whole grain blend to give these muffins a great texture. Feel free to make your own blend with your favorite flours and starches, whole grain or not. I make my all-purpose flour blends 1000 grams at a time, since it makes measuring simple, and then I have additional flour already made up for other recipes. For a whole grain blend, as mentioned in my previous post, I use 70% grains and 30% starches.

I am already overwhelmed with zucchini from my garden, so these muffins are a great way to use up some of the zucchini but also to sneak some veggies into an unsuspecting place. Chocolate is of course the real start of this show, the cocoa powder gives the muffins a beautiful color then you get the flecks of the little mini chocolate chips! YUM! The best part of this recipe is that it will work with any flour blend you choose. So make up your favorite all-purpose gluten-free blend using my guide for gluten-free flour and starches and as long as you are measuring the flour by weight for this recipe, it should work just fine.

I just made a huge batch of zucchini muffins on Sunday becaue I got a giant zucchini from a friend’s garden. I would have saved it and made this recipe instead if I had known because the addition of chocolate sounds delicious! I guess I’ll just have to request another monstruous zucchini.

I always thought that having it gluten and nut-free will not make it as good and delicious but I was wrong. I think it just depends on how the ingredients are being mixed and proper ratio and proportion of the elements.
