How to make low-carb zucchini muffins

Print this recipe
Zucchini muffins may have zucchini in them, but that doesn't make them healthy. The recipe that follows is an exception to that rule. Not only are these muffins filled with lots of yummy zucchini, which adds tons of moisture, but they're also made with low-carb coconut flour and heart-healthy coconut oil (which some studies have shown even promotes weight loss).
Choose your favorite low-carb sweetener, and don't skimp on the cinnamon – it really brings out the natural sweetness of the zucchini. If you want a hint of chocolate, add half a cup of cocoa nibs.
