Courgette (Zucchini) and Cheese Muffins (with coconut flour)


I was trying to make a savoury muffin and had a complete disaster with almond flour which surprised me as on the face of it looked to be the best flour for a savoury muffin.   After throwing two batches in the bin, I turned to my favourite, coconut flour.   This next batch was fabulous!  Moist, savoury, cheesy…just what I was hoping for.   As ever, because they are made with coconut flour, they are very high in fibre so you have to be careful with the amount you eat…wolf the whole lot down and you will have a very, very full stomach..

The courgette (zucchini) helps to keep it moist and ensures that the eggs used are less than usually used with coconut flour.  Coconut flour acts like a sponge and needs a lot of moisture.  The courgettes  (zucchini) have met their match!

    […] one of my savoury muffins with them but give it a pizza taste.  One of my early recipes has a zucchini muffin that is still as delicious as when I used to sell it in the Dubai Farmers market many years […]

    Absolutely Delicious! Thank you! Was getting tired of just eggs and bacon for breakfast! Super easy to make and the kids loved it as well!

        Well it ended up with only freezing two as a neighbour called in and was more than happy to take some home for his lunch! A friend said she enjoys them with a bowl of soup.
        Thanks again for your inspiring recipes.

      Currently from Amazon..BUT the Organic Food shop confirmed that they have ordered it and will be selling it shortly. There is also a new Gluten Free online supermarket that should be going live in December who will have it too. As soon as the Organic shop has it I will be sending messages/party invites/setting fireworks off!

    my first recipe with coconut flour…. they are OK, more like a souffle/egg dish than a muffin. Any suggestions for adjusting for altitude? I am in Colorado, about 6800′.

    I am looking forward to trying more of your recipes- I have been GF for five years and recently grain free. I was looking at honey uses when I found your site, thank you!!!!!

      Hi Tawnya..Wow..that’s high compared to where I am! I would suggest to try to add some more coconut flour as it sounds like you have too much liquid in the batter. Add another tablespoon and hopefully they should turn out like mine. Enjoy!
