Chocolate Cupcakes

Yum! these are so tasty. What I love most about these heavenly cupcakes is that, you don’t feel guilty after eating them. I find when eating gluten-free, particularly wheat free recipes, you’re not left with that bloated full feeling. The recipe calls for zucchini. I know you’ve probably haven’t heard of many recipes where it calls for zucchini in a cupcakes. I find that by adding the vegetable it adds flavour and moisture.
