Chocolate Zucchini Muffins

These have even less fat than the low fat choc chip zucchini muffins I posted last week. These are also more moist. I thought they were super delicious, and my 5 year old couldn't stop eating them.

1/3 cup boiling water
1 large zucchini, shredded
1.5 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
3/4 cup sugar
1.25 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 ripe banana, mashed
1.5 tablespoons flaxseed meal mixed with 1/8 cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla

1.) Preheat the oven to 350 degrees

2.) Pour the boiling water over the shredded zucchini

3.) Mix in the rest of the ingredients

4.) Scoop batter into muffin pan (makes 18 servings)

5.) Bake for 30 minutes.

Three large potatoes, grated
