  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Line 12 cup muffin tin with cupcake liners.
  3. Shred the zucchini and use paper towels to squeeze out excess water. Important step!
  4. Whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
  5. In separate bowl mix together melted coconut oil, maple syrup/honey, vanilla, flax, zucchini, applesauce, milk alternative and chocolate chips.
  6. Slowly and in batches add dry ingredients to wet.
  7. Mix until just combined. THE MIXTURE WILL BE RUNNY! This is a-ok. In fact, it's the reason these puppies come out so delectably moist.
  8. Evenly spoon into muffin liners.
  9. Bake for about 20 minutes. Muffins are done once a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.
  10. Enjoy!
