Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Zucchini Muffins

Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Zucchini Muffins sweetened with coconut sugar are a flavorful healthy breakfast or snack! Moist, fluffy, perfectly sweet, these muffins are better for you than regular muffins and come together quickly!

Have you checked out The Best Gluten-Free Zucchini Bread Recipe yet? If you have, you’re already familiar with these gluten-free chocolate chip zucchini muffins, as they are a riff off of the ol’ loaf.

These zucchini muffins are studded with both chocolate chips and walnuts for that ultra fluffy, moist, cinnamony, chocolatey treat with a little texture and spunk. They come together quickly, are perfect for sharing, and make for a lovely breakfast or snack. 

If you have made zucchini bread or zucchini muffins in the past, you may already know that many recipes call for draining the zucchini of water before adding it to a recipe. While this may not seem like a big deal to some of you, I find it to be an ultra inconvenience, because I like hitting things hard and fast, you feel?

SO when it comes to zucchini baked goods, I always factor the zucchini moisture into the equation. I compensate for it, if you will. Don’t fight it, join it, is my motto when it comes to zucchini splooge.

The point is, there is no draining of the zucchini necessary, and this recipe comes together very quickly and requires just one bowl. You basically add the ingredients into the bowl in stages, just adding to the ease of preparation profile here. In fact, it’s so easy, it is a great baking project for children. AND it’s even easier to clean up!

Gluten-Free Oatmeal Raisin Muffins (with rolled oats)

Gluten-free oatmeal raisin muffins made with no added flour. These rolled oat muffins are prepared in a blender, are dairy-free, refined sugar-free and easy to make!

Every Mother’s Day, I bake a batch of muffins and bring them to my family’s Mother’s Day celebration. Sadly, this year my family isn’t getting together to honor the current prescribed distancing. 

Mother’s Day can be a difficult holiday for many, and this year seems to be particularly challenging for all of us. We’re all doing the best we can given the current situation. For me, not being able to see my family on a day we all cherish is just a bummer…there is no other way to say it.

Yet, my family is trying to improve the situation by adapting.

Instead of gathering in person, we had a family video call Friday evening, during which I baked these Oatmeal Raisin Muffins as though we were all together in person. 

I pretended like I was on a cooking show, my nieces and nephews were crawling all over my brother and sister-in-law, my other brother who lives in Hawaii was making us jealous by eating poke in front of us…all great things. 

Regardless of where we all stand, I want to take the opportunity to acknowledge all the mothers out there. You are appreciated and loved. My heart and warmest wishes go out to you and your family.

I figured we could all use a fluffy, familiar muffin recipe to share with our loved ones now or later. These gluten-free oatmeal raisin muffins are so speedy quick to throw together, as you simply add all of the ingredients to a blender. It is entirely flourless, using blended rolled oats as the flour. 

It is also dairy-free and refined sugar-free – a WIN for those of us who love a fluffy sweet treat but try to keep it on the healthier end of the spectrum.

Just take for instance, my Black Bean Brownies, Vegan Garbanzo Bean Blondies, Dark Chocolate Chickpea Brownies  or my Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Chickpea Bars. My mouth is watering just typing the words.

Suffice it to say, we are not strangers to treats made with the magical fruit.

I had it in my head for many moons to develop a Black Bean Banana Bread recipe, and finally got around to actioning it. The end result? Ultra moist, fluffy, AMAZING chocolate-y rich banana bread that you’d never in a zillion years guess is made with black beans.

Because I have a ton of dry black beans in my pantry, I cooked a big batch and used 1 and ¾ cup in this recipe. You can easily use a 15-ounce can of black beans (or garbanzo beans) instead!
