Notes

  • COOKING SPRAY: These are very moist muffins so you will need to spray the inside of the muffin liners with cooking spray
  • NO SQUEEZING OF THE ZUCCHINI REQUIRED: The zucchini is really easy to grate with a box grater and it doesn't need any water squeezed out of it.
  • BAKERY STYLE KETO CHOCOLATE MUFFINS: Add a few extra chocolate chips to the tops of the muffins before baking for a bakery style look
  • NUTRITION: for 1 muffin
  • FREEZING: I like to make a batch of these and then let them cool in the muffin tin then remove them and place them in the freezer on a baking sheet so they can flash freeze for 2 hours. ¬†Now you can place them in a freezer bag or a air tight freezer container for up to 3 months.
