Recipe Ingredients for Low Carb Carrot and Zucchini Muffins

1 cup Almond Flour
1/4 cup buckwheat flour
1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/3 cup canola oil
1/3 cup maple syrup
1 large egg, at room temperature

1/2 cup grated zucchini (from 1 medium unpeeled zucchini)
1/2 cup craisins
8 oz whipped cream cheese

Recipe Directions for Low Carb Carrot and Zucchini Muffins

  1. For the muffins: Place an oven rack in the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners. Set aside.

  2. In a medium bowl, sieve together the flours, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon. Add any solids leftover in the sieve to the bowl and mix in.

  3. In a separate medium bowl, whisk together the oil, syrup, and egg. Add the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Mix in the grated carrot, grated zucchini, and craisins.

  4. Using 2 small spoons, fill the prepared muffin cups 3/4 full with the batter and bake until light golden, about 15-20 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes. Transfer the muffins to a wire rack to cool completely, about 30 minutes.

  5. For the frosting: In a small bowl, mix together the cream cheese and honey until smooth.

  6. To serve: Spread the cooled muffins with frosting, if using, and serve.
