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!
