These almond butter zucchini muffins are absolutely wonderful! They aren’t your typical carby muffins, which you’ll love because they keep you fueled and energized longer than typical sweet breads or muffins. Got excess zucchini? Make some healthy muffins with it!

These almond butter zucchini muffins are absolutely wonderful!  The main four ingredients in them are almond butter, zucchini, eggs and honey. These is only 1/3 a cup of honey in all 12 muffins. 

They aren’t your typical carby muffins, which I love because they keep me fueled and energized longer than typical sweet breads or muffins.  My kids love them and are big fans of the almond butter flavor that comes through.  Don’t have almond butter? Use peanut butter!

Baking with zucchini

If your zucchini is very large and kind of old, it may not have much liquid to squeeze out.  If you use a fresher smaller zucchini, make sure to squeeze out any excess liquid.

Ingredients for almond butter zucchini muffins

How to make them

  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.  Line muffin tins with liners. I love these silicone liners!
  2. In a large bowl whisk together the eggs, almond butter, honey and vanilla until fully combined.  Add in the coconut flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and sea salt.  Mix again.  Finally, stir in the shredded zucchini until it is fully incorporated.
  3. Pour into prepared muffin tins (mine filled up close to full).  Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center of a muffin.  Let them cool a bit before removing from the muffin tins, then enjoy!
