Chocolate Zucchini Oatmeal Muffins

This is as easy as it gets, just mix up your ingredients and throw it in the oven.  This recipe makes a very dense chocolate treat, somewhat healthy considering you are only using 3/4 c sugar for the whole recipe which makes about 24 muffins. The zucchini and oatmeal really make a moist texture muffin.  I'll be making these again.

Chocolate Zucchini Oatmeal Muffins

Preheat oven to 350°


1/2 c boiling water
2 c grated zucchini
3/4 c oatmeal
1/2 c canola oil
3 eggs
1 T brewed coffee
3/4 c sugar
1 1/2 c flour (I used one cup reg flour and half cup whole wheat)
1/2 c cocoa (Hershey it is our local brand!)
1 T cinnamon
1 1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp kosher salt
chocolate chips

Mix together zucchini, oatmeal and boiling water.  Then mix in rest of ingredients down to chocolate chips, when well mixed stir in chips.  Scoop into prepared muffin tins makes about 24, you can fill to the top they don't really rise to much.  Bake at 350° for 12-15 min.

***After revisiting the site where I found the recipe that led to this I see in the directions she added cinnamon it wasn't listed in the ingredients but 1 T of cinnamon would be a good addition I added it to my ingredient list but it didn't go into this batch.
