  • First, preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a muffin pan with paper liners.
  • Grate zucchini. Place grated zucchini on a towel or paper towel and wring out all excess water.
  • In a mixing bowl, add almond flour, coconut flour, tapioca flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and sea salt. Stir to combine.
  • Then, add in eggs, mashed banana, maple syrup and vanilla extract. Stir to combine.
  • Add in grated zucchini. Stir to combine.
  • Next, fold in dark chocolate chips.
  • Use an ice cream scoop or large spoon to add batter to muffin liners. Fill almost to the top.
  • Bake for 15 to 16 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the muffins comes out clean.
  • Remove from oven. Allow muffins to cool in pan for 10 minutes. Then carefully transfer to a cooling rack to finish cooling.


  • Finely grate zucchini.  I use the smaller holes in a cheese grater.
  • Fully squeeze out all water from zucchini.
  • I do not recommend trying to replace the eggs in this recipe.  They are vital to the fluffy texture!
  • I use an ice cream scoop to add batter to muffin liners.  A large spoon works well too.
  • Bake until muffins are set in the middle and a toothpick inserted comes out clean.  Do not over bake!
  • Store muffins covered at room temperature for up to 3 days.
  • If needed, store in fridge.  Once chilled, they are more firm.  Allow them to thaw slightly before eating.
  • Freeze muffins for up to 1 month if desired.
