Blender Chocolate Muffins

These past few weeks have been crazy to say the least. I've been working 10-14 hour days every day, working on weekends, dealing with losing a venue 2 weeks before a huge conference I'm putting on and a CRM system that decided to malfunction. Oh, and I also managed to finally fit going on a date into my crazy schedule with a guy my friends tried to set me up with and there was zero chemistry. I guess it's a good thing I don't have time to date because it's exhausting and pretty much the worst. But more on that in another post. This past weekend I decided to go on a 20 hour camping trip with my younger sister with no cell service to escape and not be able to check emails! It was too short, but much needed and I am so lucky to have a sister that is so supportive and will drive 8 hours to go camping for less than 24 hours! Here's a picture of the two of us enjoying tent life in our matching sleeping bags that look like ninja turtles!:

Enough with the ranting, and on to the good stuff! I made these chocolate muffins a few weeks ago for a Board meeting and am excited to finally share the recipe. These are SO easy to make but you'll have everyone fooled that you spent time in the kitchen baking something delicious. Trust me when I say you'll have no idea they're made with zucchini! I didn't tell any of the Board members, and no one had any clue, mwuahaha. They were all eaten up right away and got rave reviews.

Board meetings are the perfect excuse to bake, because I can share with a large group and not have baked goods sitting around my house, and feeling guilty when I eat 3 in one sitting. It's also the perfect way to secretly have taste testers without actually having to find someone to taste test (which you'd think would be easy, right? Who doesn't want to eat my delicious food?!).

Ingredients:

1 cup zucchini, grated

1/2 c chocolate chips (I used non-dairy Enjoy Life chips)

1 cup cocoa powder

1/2 tsp baking powder

4 eggs

1/2 cup coconut sugar

1/2 cup tapioca flour

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit

2. Blend all ingredients but the chocolate chips and zucchini in a blender

3. Pour mixture into a large bowl

4. Mix in zucchini and chocolate chips

5. Line muffin tin with cupcake liners

6. Add 1/4 cup batter to each muffin well

7. Sprinkle with chocolate chips on top (optional - I used mini chips)

8. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean

Enjoy!
