Moistest Sugar-Free Zucchini Muffins Ever

These muffins are the softest, moistest, most delicious that I have ever had, and they're sugar free! They can even be turned paleo with a few substitutions. Seriously, they are so good that I created an Allrecipes account just to share them!

12 muffins


  • cooking spray

  • 1 ripe banana, mashed

  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, melted

  • 1 egg

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted

  • 2 cups shredded zucchini

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg (Optional)

  • 1 dash salt

  • ¼ cup milk

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar (Optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray.

  2. Combine banana, butter, egg, and coconut oil in a bowl; mix until well combined. Add zucchini and vanilla extract; mix well.

  3. Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt in a separate bowl. Add gradually to zucchini mixture, stirring until well combined. Stir in milk slowly. Scoop 1/4 cup batter into each muffin cup. Sprinkle each muffin with 1 teaspoon brown sugar.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until tops spring back when lightly pressed, about 20 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

For paleo muffins, substitute butter with coconut oil or a banana, and use coconut milk.

Optional: Sprinkle 1 teaspoon brown or coconut sugar over each muffin before baking. It gives them a great crunch!
