Zucchini- Chocolate Almond Flour Muffins

Zucchini- Chocolate Almond Flour Muffins

If you haven’t had any zucchini this summer, you are missing out!  It is so good right now and these sweet zucchini muffins will tickle your taste buds. Thanks for the zucchini Alyssa!

For those of you new to almond flour, it is a wonderful flour to bake with.  For many of us struggling with  digestive disease, almond flour is a necessity because it is easy to digest, grain, and gluten free.  For everyone else almond flour is great because it is low in carbohydrates, high in protein and Vitamin E.  One of the best things about almond f lour is you feel full when you eat just one muffin.  Because of the protein in the flour it satisfies you and you aren’t craving the 2nd and 3rd helping.

Costco is carrying Honeyville Blanched Almond Flour now and it is the super fine grind.  It is a 3 pound package for $17.99 which makes it $5.99 a pound, that is a great price!  That pricing is very comparable to almond flour that you buy online and even a little less.  I’ve tested the Honeyville flour and it is very good so next time you are at Costco stock up!

** Always make sure you get blanched almond flour that is finely ground to bake my recipes.  You won’t have a good result if you use something else.

This recipe is SCD legal if you leave out the dark chocolate chips.
