Chocolate is a wonderful thing. However, when you’re trying to lose weight chocolate can be a very tempting mistress that tends to lead people astray.

Being a Trim Healthy Mama, things are a little different. Chocolate is welcome – encouraged even!

When you eat these beauties, you won’t believe they are sugar free, low carb, and full of zucchini.

For a change of pace, I have a recipe VIDEO for you.

Here’s a list of what you’ll need:

Chocolate Zucchini Muffins (THM S)

  • 1/2 c coconut oil
  • 1/2 c butter
  • 1 bag Lily’s chocolate chips
  • 2 c grated zucchini (about 2 medium zucchini)
  • 2 Tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup coconut flour
  • 3/4 c xylitol
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp instant espresso (optional)
  • 4 eggs

Wait until they completely cool to try one. The texture is pretty soft straight out of the oven, but they are divine. This recipe makes about 2 dozen muffins. I find they keep best in a Ziploc bag in the fridge.
