How to do it

  1. PREHEAT the oven to 350 F°(180 C°)
  2. GRATE the zucchini, then squeeze them thoroughly to remove any extra water using a clean towel. Set aside.
  3. BEAT the egg together with mashed banana, and oil, a large mixing bowl. Whisk until combined, then add the grated zucchini and stir well.
  4. SIFT IN Choc-o-lotta Dilettoso mix into the wet ingredients. Gradually, pour in the milk or milk mixture (see HOT HOT HOT Tip) prepared before, while mixing with a spatula or hand whisk.
  5. STIR until you get a lump-free smooth batter, then fold through the chocolate chips.
  6. FILL ⅔ of each muffin liner with the batter, sprinkle with more chocolate chips and top with a thin strawberry slice.
  7. BAKE in a hot oven for 30 to 35 minutes. Make sure you do not over bake the muffins; they are ready when you insert a toothpick into the center and it comes out clean.
  8. NOW Enjoy!

Did you know?

Why zucchini? In this recipe, the zucchini serves two purposes. First, it levels up the nutritional profile of the dessert by providing vitamins and minerals such as vitamin A and C. Second, it adds moisture and additional texture to the muffins, making them softer.
