Directions

Step 1 

Preheat oven to 375˚F (190˚C). Grease the muffin tin with cooking spray or line with paper liners.

Step 2 

In a large bowl, combine the flour, oats, cocoa powder, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

Step 3 

In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk or milk alternative, oil, and eggs.

Step 4 

Squeeze handfuls of the grated zucchini and sweet potato in your hands to remove excess water. Add the sweet potato, zucchini, and chocolate chips to the wet ingredients.

Step 5 

Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix just until combined. Evenly distribute the batter between the 12 muffin cups.

Step 6 

Bake in the preheated oven for 18 to 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.

Step 7 

Let cool for 5 minutes before removing from the muffin tin and cool completely on a wire rack.
