Sometimes you need a little chocolate in your life! These chocolate zucchini muffins pack a serious chocolate punch that will satisfy any craving, but come with some sneaky veggies and some extra protein. They are definitely a treat, but they are also a treat you can feel good about.
Hope everyone is having a lovely week! I've been a bit sporadic in my posts, but that is because I've been so busy. I started my triathlon training last week and I couldn't be more excited. I'm finally feeling confident on my bike (it sat basically untouched for 2 years because I was afraid to ride it) and being back in the pool has been a lot more fun than I expected it to be, though it has been a reality check after my 7 years of retirement!
I still have lots of yummy, healthy (but obviously delicious) treats in store for you, so stay tuned!
