Ingredients

  • 6 medium eggs
  • 75 g / 3/4 cup coconut flour
  • 125 g / 1 cup packed grated courgette/zucchini
  • 75 ml / 1/3 cup coconut oil melted
  • 30 g / 1/4 cup granulated sweetener
  • 4 drops stevia equivalent to 1 tsp table sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp grated nutmeg

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 180 Celsius/356 Fahrenheit
  • Grate the zucchini and melt your coconut oil in a pan or the microwave. If you do not want to see green specks in your muffins, peel the zucchini first.
  • Combine all ingredients except the zucchini in a bowl or a food processor and mix well.
  • Stir in the zucchini.
  • Line a muffin pan with paper cups and half-fill each cup with the dough.
  • Bake at 180 Celsius for 25 minutes or until lightly browned on top.

Notes

I used both erythritol and liquid stevia in this recipe, because I find that this prevents either taste (the cooling taste of erythritol and the metallic taste of stevia) from coming through.
