Zucchini & Chocolate Muffins

Its been a while i havent baked anything with zucchini, an incredible versatile vegetable quite known for its low calories..Whenever i bought this low caloric vegetable, i'll prepare either dals or rotis with them,somehow my sweet tooth was craving for some bakes with chocolate since few days..Finally i prepared some super spongy muffins with finely grated zucchini and dark chocolate with eggs and usual ingredients..My teddies just loved these cute looking muffins for both their breakfast and for their snacks, none noticed the 'secret ingredient" until i told them that these pretty looking muffins are prepared with zucchini..Wat a simple way to sneak these veggies na..Do check out the other marathoners running blogging marathon with me here..Sending to  Srivalli's Chocolate Mela,Cooking For Kids-Zucchini guest hosted by Anusha,event by Kalyani,Bake Fest#3 guest hosted by Pradnya,event by Vardhini, Ramya's ABC-Desserts  and finally to CEDD guest hosted by Suma,event by Raven& to Srav's Chocolate Fest...

Wow this looks so delicious! And the zucchini definitely ups the health quotient. Do you have any eggless version of this one?
