Vegan Almond Flour Zucchini Muffins {grain-free, oil-free}

Easy-to-make vegan almond flour zucchini muffins! Most, delicious, & easy to make, they are a great way to use some of your zucchini bounty.

Easy Grain-Free Vegan Almond Flour Muffins

Once I accepted my publisher’s offer to write my new comprehensive muffin book, I was determined to offer a slew of modern options. I am exceptionally fortunate that he went along whole-heartedly.

One of my favorite chapters (it’s like choosing a favorite child–I love them all, for different reasons) is the Gluten-Free Muffins chapter, which features 88 new, original recipes.

If you’re new to gluten-free baking, fear not: it does not have to be complicated. Gluten-free flour options have grown extensively over the past few years, including all-purpose, gluten-free flour blends (i.e., you do not need to mix multiple flours and starches on your own), single grain gluten-free flours (e.g., quinoa, millet and teff), and grain-free flour, such as coconut and almond.

Muffins are a perfect place to begin, and, because I was just yesterday gifted with a box of humungous zucchini from my neighbor (thanks, Ellen!), I thought I would share my recipe for vegan almond flour zucchini muffins.

Almond Flour, the Easy-to-Use Gluten-Free Flour

Working with almond flour is a snap, because no gums are starches are needed to hold everything together! In the case of these muffins, a bit of flaxseed meal, some almond butter (or the nut/seed butter of your choosing) and unsweetened applesauce.

I’ve packed these muffins with nutrition and kept the sweetness (I used coconut palm sugar, which has a low glycemic level) very low; you could even leave the sweetener out altogether to go more savory.

Warning: you may swoon as these bake: the scent of cinnamon will leave you dreaming of the cooler weather and winter festivities n the months ahead. It’s still in the 90s here in Texas, so I need to eat a few extra muffins to keep the dream alive.

I am certain you will love these muffins, regardless of your dietary needs or proclivities. Batter up!
