If you need a chocolate and peanut butter fix here you go! These muffins have veggies in them, but you won’t be able to taste it.
Yellow or zucchini squash make these muffins extra moist. I like to shred summer squash and freeze it in two cup portions to be able to use it throughout the year. If using frozen squash, just be sure to drain off any excess water before putting it in a recipe.
Almond butter can be used in place of peanut butter, if you prefer.
I use a Vita-Mix blender, which is a power-horse of a blender. If you don’t have a heavy-duty blender you may want to use a food processor instead.
