What Are Keto Zucchini Muffins?
Keto zucchini muffins are sweet, moist almond flour zucchini muffins.
They include grated zucchini that add a delicious, moist texture to the muffins while helping you reach your 5-a-day.
How To Make Almond Flour Zucchini Muffins
They are perfect for breakfast on the go or as a quick snack with only 4.5 grams of net carbs per serving.
All you need to make zucchini muffins paleo and keto are the following wholesome ingredients:
- Grated zucchini – Zucchini is one of the best low-carb vegetables. Make sure you squeeze out all their water before measuring.
- Almond flour – Almond Flour is keto-friendly and delicious in muffins!
- Large eggs – at room temperature.
- Coconut cream if you want to make dairy-free zucchini muffins. Otherwise, heavy cream works as well, and it’s also a keto-friendly dairy product.
- Coconut oil or melted butter – at room temperature.
- Baking powder
- Sugar-free crystal sweetener – I like to use erythritol and Monk fruit blend, but you can also use pure erythritol or any crystal sweetener of your choice like coconut sugar if you want to make zucchini muffins paleo.
- Xanthan gum – this is optional, but it prevents overly moist zucchini chocolate chip muffins, especially if you didn’t squeeze out well the zucchini water.
- Sugar-free chocolate chips – or cocoa nibs or crushed pecan, walnuts if preferred. If you can’t find sugar-free chocolate chips, you can make your own with my chocolate chips recipe.
