- We make flourless muffins every week on my weekly meal prep menu! If you are in the Pittsburgh area, check out my meal prep menu.
- Almond butter–This is the base of the recipe and what allows the muffins to be smooth! Make sure you use a creamy almond butter.
- Zucchini–Washed and grated!
- Chocolate chips–Enjoy life is my favorite brand!
- Maple syrup–Acts as a sweetener. If you are looking for a lower carb option, you can skip this!
- Eggs–Bind the muffins together.
- Baking soda–Pushes the muffins to expand.
- Apple cider vinegar–This helps the muffins rise, along with the baking soda.
How To Make:
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- Place all ingredients, EXCEPT zucchini & chocolate chips, into a blender. Blend this mixture until it is smooth.
- Add grated zucchini and chocolate chips into the blender. Gently fold in, using a spatula.
- Either line your muffin pan with paper liners or use a silicone muffin pan! Divide up the batter. Be sure to only fill the muffins half way because they will rise!
- Bake the muffins for 20 minutes, or until you can stick a fork in the muffins and the fork comes out clean.
- Allow the muffins to sit for at least 10 minutes prior to moving them.
Can I Substitute Peanut Butter For Almond Butter?
- Sure! However, peanut butter has a richer taste than almond butter. So please note that the taste will be a bit different.
What Kind of Almond Butter Should I Use?
- I suggest using a creamy and smooth almond butter (one without almond chunks). I love using the Kirkland brand for this! They have the best almond butter made from pure almonds– no fillers. I have found it to be the best bang for your buck!
How Long Do These Muffins Last?
- I suggest eating them within 5 days. You can also freeze them for up to a month, to have a stash on hand!
How Should I Store Them?
- I suggest storing the muffins in an airtight container in the fridge! They are so yummy when they are chilled!
- If you are able, invest in the silicone muffin pans! They are so easy to clean and the muffins literally pop right out.
- Be sure to allow the muffins to sit (at least 10 minutes) prior to moving them, to prevent them from falling apart.
