Chocolate and Zucchini Mini-muffins

Chocolate and Zucchini Mini Muffins

My boys love these muffins and they don't even like zucchini!  The zucchini is hidden so well but adds a lovely moist texture to these muffins.  They are perfect for little hands and freeze well to pull out for lunchboxes or snacks on the go.

1/2 cup virgin coconut oil
1 ripe banana - mashed
2 cups of gulten free flour (recipe for flour in my ebook or store bought)
