Chocolate Zucchini Muffins

Take advantage of the harvest and make some high-fibre, low sugar muffins you can grab and go. Paleo-friendly, they do not include grains. They include almond flour, so not school safe, but they make for an easy higher-protein, healthy fat option you can grab and go.

Make a batch of 12, and freeze half for the following week.


  • 2 cups Almond Flour

  • 1/4 cup Cocoa Powder

  • 1/4 tsp Sea Salt

  • 1/4 tsp Baking Soda

  • 1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil

  • 1/4 cup Maple Syrup

  • 3 Egg

  • 1 Zucchini (medium, grated)


  • Preheat your oven to 350F and line a muffin tin with muffin liners. Brush each liner with a small amount of coconut oil, to prevent sticking.

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the almond flour, cocoa powder, sea salt, and baking soda. Mix well.

  • In a medium-size bowl, whisk together the olive oil, maple syrup, and eggs. Add the wet ingredients to the dry. Mix until combined then stir in the zucchini.

  • Spoon the muffin batter between cups, so it's evenly divided then bake for 18 to 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the centre of a muffin comes out clean.

  • Let cool completely before eating, to prevent the muffins from sticking to the liners.
