Hi guys! I am so stoked to be here today sharing a favorite paleo recipe with you all! First of all, let me introduce myself, so you aren’t just eating food made by a stranger;) I am Kaylie, the founder of paleoglutenfree.com. I am 20 years old and I love baking without grains! Basically, making healthy food look and taste good is my thing. One look at a clean kitchen will make me want to bake all over again. I live off of brussel sprouts, kale chips, and almond butter. And if you don’t love vegetables disguised as Chocolate Muffins then I’m not sure if we can be friends….. Just kidding, I’m sure I’ll still like you;)
A huge thank you to Juli for sharing Her corner of the internet with me today! I was that 16 year old girl who poured over every cookbook and blog post of Juli’s, so being here is a dream! Thanks girl!
Now, about these muffins. These muffins are everything a muffin should be. Big. Huge. A little Veg. A little protein. And a whole lot of chocolate! These bakery style chocolate zucchini muffins were made in extra large muffin tins (hence the Baker Style). If you don’t have a large muffin tin, it’s okay! You can use a normal sized muffin tin and it will make more. Really, you can’t go wrong. Also, another note on this recipe: I used black cocoa.. But if you don’t have any, you can just use the normal brown stuff.
These muffins are fudgy, soft, moist, and a healthy decadent treat for brunch… or really any day. Enjoy!
