Whole wheat chocolate zucchini muffin on dish.

This recipe for Double Chocolate Zucchini Muffins is adapted from this Chocolate Zucchini Muffins recipe. The muffins are delicious, they are made with whole wheat flour, a little fat and not too much sugar.

I did adapt the recipe by using only whole wheat pastry flour, increasing the amount of milk and steeping a bag of chai in it before adding the milk to the recipe. 

The chai is barely noticeable but I did find it added some extra flavour. You can easily omit the chai if you don't like the taste or want to keep things simple.

Both my girls loved these moist and tender chocolatey muffins and did not notice the zucchini in them at all.

Nice post. I guess all parents will have to go thru this phase with their children at one point till they get used to the different flavors. I bet almost all children will like these muffins you presented, coz who doesnt love chocolate? So anythin nutritious hidden in it wont be an issue with them. :)

Thanks Sadia! I think many parents do have to deal with this issue, though I know some who are lucky enough to have their kids eat pretty much everything.
