Low Carb Zucchini Muffins – Keto Friendly – Grain, Gluten and Nut Free

A while back I created a recipe for grain free, gluten free and nut free zucchini muffins. Recently, I reworked the recipe to make them low carb and keto friendly as well. I’ve been able to reduce the number of carbs in each muffin from 23 grams to 5 grams of net carbs per muffin and these low carb zucchini muffins still have a hint of sweetness. Even though they’re low carb these muffins were still a hit with my family and met my requirements for a low carb, keto-friendly snack!

  4. Add the shredded zucchini to the cream cheese and egg mixture and stir until coated. 

  5. Add the dry ingredients into the moist ingredients and stir until combined.

Recipe Notes

These low carb zucchini muffins don’t rise much and they will be a bit soft right out of the oven but the set up firmer once they are refrigerated.
