  • 1 1/2 cup zucchini, shredded 
  • 1/2 cup (120 ml) light taste olive oil
  • 1 cup (200 gr) granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons (230 gr) all-purpose flour, sifted
  • 2/3 cup (60 gr) natural unsweetened cacao
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch of salt


  • Preheat oven to 350º F. Line pan with cupcake liners.
  • In a large bowl, mix all ingredients with a wooden spoon until well combined. It may look a little bit thick but it's OK, when baking the zucchini will release a lot of liquid.
  • Fill cupcake liners 3/4 full and bake for 20- 25 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Remove from the oven and let cool completely.
  • Frost cooled cupcakes with your favorite frosting.
