If you’re struggling to get your kids to eat vegetables – or if you want to get some more into your own diet – a neat trick is to add them to treats like cakes and muffins.

(The fact that these muffins use monk fruit sweetener (use code eatbefitexplore for 20% off) and Sukrin instead of sugar makes them even healthier!)

Zucchini is a great vegetable to use in baking. It has a very neutral flavor and mostly consists of water – which helps your baked goods stay moist. The best way to use it is to grate it and then mixed with the other ingredients.

The zucchini will basically disintegrate during baking. No one will even know there is zucchini in the muffins! If you’ve never used zucchini in baking before, I’m sure you have a few questions!

Do you peel a zucchini before grating?

No, you do not have to peel a zucchini before grating. The skin is edible, and once the muffins are cooked you won’t even see the zucchini pieces.

How do you peel a zucchini?

Cut off both ends of the zucchini. Give it a scrub under warm running water to remove any dirt. Then, use a box grater and grate the zucchini on the side with the bigger holes. Or, you can use a food processor with a grater attachment.

What size zucchini must I use for baking?

You’ll want to use the smaller zucchini – around 8-10 inches long. The larger ones tend to be a bit drier and more bitter.

How do you store walnut zucchini muffins?

Once the muffins have cooled, store them in an airtight container. These Walnut Zucchini Muffins disappear very quickly in my home, but if you think you will still have some after 3 days, keep the airtight container in the fridge. You can even freeze these if you’d like.

Keto Walnut Zucchini Muffins

Yield: 12
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes



  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray a muffin tin with non stick spray or line with muffin liners. Grate the zuccchini, sprinkle it with 1/2 tsp of salt and let it sit .
  2. Meanwhile, whisk eggs, oil, sweetener, brown sugar alternative and vanilla in a large bowl. Set aside.
  3. Combine almond flour, coconut flour, cinnamon, and baking powder. 
  4. Fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. 
  5. Soak out extra water from the zucchini and add into the mixture. Add in the walnuts and fold in until incorporated. 
  6. If your batter is too thick, add in the 1 cup coconut milk or almond milk. See notes
  7. Scoop into muffin tin using an ice cream scoop.
  8. Bake for 30-45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean and muffins are golden brown on top. 
  9. Let cool completely before eating. 


If you did a good job removing the water from the zucchini, your batter will be thick and you may need to add some nut milk to smooth it out.

If you have excess water from the zucchini, you won't need to add more liquid to the batter. Adjust accordingly.
