THM Recipe: Low Carb Chocolate Zucchini Muffins (S)

Dear Reader,

I have been in a muffin kick lately. This is a yet another variant of my peanut butter muffin recipe. My older son doesn’t like peanut butter so while we loved the chocolate peanut butter version, we needed something else too. They are more of a dark chocolate, not too sweet taste. They are also low-carb and gluten-free. If you are on the THM diet, they are an S.

Chocolate Zucchini Muffins (S):


1/2 c flax seed meal

1/3 c coconut flour

1 c xylitol

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

4 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder

8 oz reduced cream cheese

1 medium zucchini, grated

1 tsp vanilla

2 eggs or 1/3 c egg whites

optional: 1/3 c chocolate chips (plan-approved if you are on THM!; I used dark chocolate I chopped into bits)


Preheat oven to 350 and grease a muffin tin well. Combine moist  ingredients: zucchini, cream cheese, egg, and vanilla. Stir well to get rid of any cream cheese lumps. Add dry ingredients: flours, xylitol, salt, and baking powder. Stir well. (You might want to taste it as this point to make sure you like the sweetness, especially if you have substituted another sweetener. Mine seemed a little sweeter after being baked.) If desired, stir in chocolate chips. Divide into muffin cups and bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes or until well set.
