PEN Low carb keto zucchini muffins

I'm just warning you. You will like these healthy gluten-free zucchini muffins.

They are SRSLY tender and fluffy and they have this spicy combination of cinnamon and cardamom that will make your taste buds tingle to the toes. I just have a moment with cardamom. Liiiike, almost everything that I eat goes on.

These warm flavor profiles combine with nutty notes of TAHINI that BURN in explosions of flavor and will make you say WHOA, WHOA.

If you like WAIT WHAT TAYLOR? Tahini IN A MUFFIN? ARE YOU CRAY? I understand. But don't you remember the vegan brownies with berries and tahini and chocolate paleo muffins with maple and tahini? Tahini when baking is the BEST.

Wait a second. We didn't even talk about the ZUCCHINI, which is combined with the TAHINI in these low-ketate muffins with almond flour. (Can't stop. Will not stop.)

It's officially spring time, which means that you and I will eat gluten-free mac and cheese with zucchini noodles, zucchini noodles with pesto and fried eggs AND zucchini noodles with BBQ chicken casserole on the left and CENTER.

So we can just as easily add “breakfast” and “snack” to this menu and bake our vegetable friend directly in pillow-soft bites of Muffin BLISS.

Healthy swaps

Muffins are a serious comfort food in my books! They are tender, tasty, the perfect size for a snack at any time of the day or for breakfast when you run out of time in the morning on the way to the door! I love doing a lot of magic Almond flour paleo banana nut muffins or some Healthy wholegrain blueberry muffins! You may be thinking, "Sure, muffins are DELISH, but aren't they loaded with sugar and ingredients so loaded for you that I feel sluggish?" I hear you on it! Many muffin recipes are loaded with sugar, but THIS low-carb zucchini muffins are just as tasty without all the sugar! Here are some changes I've made to improve them for you:

  • White flour: Instead of the typical all-purpose flour you'll find in most muffin recipes, I decided against it and ate almond meal instead! It is low in carbohydrates, high in protein and healthy!
  • sugar:: Many baking recipes require normal, processed white sugar. I used monk fruit instead, which brings all the sweetness in a more natural and refined way.
  • Milk: Milk is not an unhealthy ingredient, but to make these muffins milk-free, I used unsweetened almond milk instead!

What other sugar substitute products can I use?

In this delicious Almond flour zucchini muffins, I used monk fruit to sweeten it. It is a natural and delicious way to sweeten your baked goods without a strange aftertaste! RESULT! If you don't have monk fruit and want to try another sweetener, I say join in! I can't make any commitments as to whether it would work or not since I was just trying what is in the ingredients, but feel free to let me know how they end up for you!
