If you’ve read my little “about me” blurb you may know that I am currently adapting to the Paleo Lifestyle aka the diet without the joy of Cheez-its and Honey Nut Cheerios. Seriously though, I’ve been glaring at people eating sandwiches and I don’t even care for bread all that much. My vice is chocolate. And Cheez-its. Boxes and boxes of crunchy and salty white cheddar Cheez-its. My freshman year economics professor told the class that her favorite thing to eat was Cheez-its and Coke. Something about complementary goods, whatever. This is pretty much the only thing I learned in that class, but most importantly she was right!! Have you tried Cheez-its and Coke??? Don’t buy in bulk! Seriously. I am saving you from standing next to your pantry in your pajamas and eating out of the box. I digress.

Paleo. I’ve been trying to eat very clean, but mostly I’ve been trying to find desserts that would be fluffy, chocolatey, satisfy my cravings, and not taste like I’m chewing wet sand (banana bread review coming up). Apparently such desserts exist even on a diet (I know, I was surprised too). In fact, these particular muffins are so good that I’d make them even if I wasn’t on a no-carb bandwagon. I adapted (blatantly copied) the recipe for Moist Chocolate Zucchini Bread courtesy of PaleOMG. FYI, she has a ton of great and actually edible Paleo recipes. I can tell you as a lover of all things carbs and chocolate that all the recipes I’ve tried from her website tasted fantastic.

Anyway, the only change I’ve made is adding some bittersweet chocolate chips. Whatever. It was still super healthy compared to what I usually eat. I also cut the recipe in half and baked it for 20 minutes in muffin tins. Perfect. Also, you can’t go wrong with a dessert that consists of 1 tablespoon of coconut flour and zucchini. I am so healthy, I am practically eating air. Go make them now and let me know what you think!!!

Are you currently following any “lifestyle” or “diet” deal? Have you found many recipes that were even better than their non-diet counterparts? Let me know!
