These low carb Zucchini Muffins are flourless, oil-free and a spectacularly moist and delicious gluten free recipe! Made with wholesome ingredients for a perfect healthy snack.
I realized this week that I haven’t made a muffin in a long time! There was a time I was making muffins every week. I don’t know if I should call it cravings or obsessions. Coffee Cake Muffins, Blueberry Muffins, Chocolate Banana Muffins, I have so many I love!
All I know is this week I needed a muffin. These gluten free zucchini muffins showed up on My Fitness Pal app blog a while ago, so I decided to give them a try.
First of all, I was shocked that that there was absolutely no flour of any kind used in this recipe. And I will say, I was a little skeptical.
Then I was elated! Because they are so unbelievably amazing! These muffins make a great breakfast or little snack to have along with some fruit and/or yogurt.
I added a few mini chocolate chips to this batch too. It’s a great thing when you can sneak a little veggie into a muffin for your kids too. No one has a clue!
How to Make these Zucchini Muffins
Pre-heat oven to 375 °F
Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray or line with paper liners.
In a medium sized bowl, add all the ingredients, except the chocolate chips.
Stir until well combined.
Then gently stir in the chocolate chips.
Fill each muffin cavity about ¾ full with the mixture.
Bake for 12-14 minutes or until the tops are set and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Allow muffins to cool for 5-10 minutes.
Can You Freeze Muffins?
Yes! These muffins freeze well. I wrap each one individually in plastic wrap and then place them in a freezer bag for up to 4 months. <– if they would ever make it that long.
