1. Preheat the oven to 170Fan/190*C and line a muffin tin with cases.

2. To a mixing bowl, add the grated courgette, milk, sunflower oil, coconut sugar and vanilla and whisk to combine. Now pour in the oat flour, plain/spelt flour, cacao/cocoa powder, baking powder and salt and whisk to form a smooth batter. Fold in most of the chocolate chunks, saving some for the top.

3. Divide the batter between 12 muffin cases, filling each about ¾ full. Top with the remaining chocolate chunks and bake for 20-22 minutes until risen and firm to the touch.

4.Cool on a wire rack and after 10 minutes remove from the cases and cool fully. Drizzle with melted chocolate, to serve. Store in an airtight container for 3 days.
