Makes 12. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and prep muffin pan with paper liners.
Ingredients
  • 1 cup flour (I used King Arthur's Gluten-Free Multi-Purpose Flour.)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ¾ tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground ginger
  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
  • ½ cup pure maple syrup
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 packed cup shredded zucchini, patted dry
  • A handful of chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. In a mixing bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, sea salt, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg.
  2. Add the maple syrup, oil, and eggs. Beat together until the batter turns smooth.
  3. Add the zucchini and chocolate chips. Stir by hand until everything is combined. The batter will be slightly sticky.
  4. Spoon the mixture into the muffin cups, and bake for about 20-25 minutes. Insert a wooden toothpick into the center of a muffin to check for doneness. The toothpick should emerge clean.
  5. Cool the muffin pan on a wire rack for a few minutes, then transfer each muffin out of the pan and onto the wire rack to continue cooling.
