  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 cup of flour (I opted for white organic)

  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder

  • 1 large ripe banana

  • 30ml of milk

  • 3 tablespoons of cocoa powder

  • 3 tablespoons of maple syrup

  1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius on fan bake. Line a muffin tray with 24 small patty pans.

  2. In a blender, combine the zucchini, banana, milk, maple syrup, and eggs until you have a smooth liquid mixture.

  3. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Pour the liquid mixture into the dry ingredients and mix until you achieve a thick, smooth texture. Stir in the chopped dark chocolate.

  4. Fill each patty pan with the batter and bake for approximately 10 minutes, or until a toothpick or knife inserted into the center comes out clean.

  5. Once baked, you can enjoy these muffins hot with a dollop of butter or store them in an airtight container for convenient snacks throughout the week.
