Gluten-Free Vegan Zucchini Chocolate MuffinsBy The Hearty BakerBaking with zucchini is awesome! You get your veggies and a delicious, moist muffin. When I was a kid, I remember an abundance of zucchini in our summer-time kitchen, since Mom was an avid gardener. For a good solid month, there was zucchini present at every meal in some form. My favorite way to enjoy zucchini as a kid was either as zucchini breed or zucchini muffins. Here is a recipe that is sure to please everyone.
