I was fortunate enough to grow up with a big family garden. In the summer that meant lots and lots of zucchini. We would eat zucchini in just about everything for about a month! Zucchini muffins fresh from the oven and slathered in butter was definitely my favorite way to eat zucchini as a kid. I took our family recipe and changed out some of the ingredients to make them grain free. I hope you enjoy my new version of grain-free zucchini muffins!

Grain-Free Zucchini Muffins

When you have a surplus of zucchini, make these tasty, moist, grain-free muffins.


  • 2 cups zucchini, shredded
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup coconut sugar
  • 2 cups Otto's Cassava Flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp aluminum free baking powder
  • You can add in nuts, chocolate chips, or raisins if you would like to


  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Shred zucchini to measure 2 cups.

  • In a separate bowl beat eggs, oil, vanilla, and sugar until well combined (this takes a little time with coconut sugar).

  • In another bowl combine flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, salt, baking soda, and baking powder.

  • Fresh ground nutmeg really makes the flavor pop!

  • Add zucchini to the egg mixture and stir, then fold into the flour mixture.

  • Put muffin cups onto a baking sheet and bake at 375°F for 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

  • Store in a covered container. They last 2-3 days. Refrigerate or freeze to last longer.
