Wouldn’t it be great to have a muffin and not worry about all the sugar?
I’ve been looking into developing sugar-free (this does not mean using artificial sugar!) muffins for a while now and this is one of my favorites. It’s such a versatile muffin; you can have it for breakfast as well as lunch with a fresh salad. You can freeze some of them and have them later.

Savory Zucchini Muffins
Author: Magdalena Wszelaki
- 1 pepper; yellow or red
- Handful of sun-dried tomatoes (can be dry or in oil)
- 1 large onion
- 1 large zucchini, grated
- ½ cup olive oil
- ½ cup coconut oil
- 1 tbsp extra coconut oil for onion frying
- 1 tbsp dry rosemary
- 1 tbsp dry oregano
- ½ tsp black pepper
- 2 tbsps flaxseed + 3 tbsps of water
- 1 ½ cups oat flour
- 1 cup corn meal (or rice flour)
- 1 tbsp sea salt
- 2 tsp baking powder
How To Make
- Preheat the oven to 375F or 190C
- Combine flaxseed meal + water and let it stand for a few minutes
- If dry sun-dried tomatoes are used, pour boiling water over them and let them stand for 5 minutes, drain and cut them into smaller pieces
- Fry the onion in coconut oil until well browned (the browner they are, the sweeter they will be)
- Roast the pepper over stove fire by holding it in kitchen thongs till skin is black, remove skin from the pepper and chop up the pepper into small chunks
- Combine all dry ingredients (flours, salt, baking powder)
- Combine all wet ingredients; zucchini, onions, pepper, tomatoes and oils
- Mix dry, wet ingredients, herbs and flaxseed into a liquid mixture; if it’s not liquid enough, add some oil
- Dish out mixture to about 12 muffin cups
- Bake for 25-30 min or till the tops are firm.
Sounds good, but I”m wondering, what is the health benefit of adding the roasted pepper in it? Thanks:-)
i made it but omitted a lot of the fat, and used almond meal rather than corn meal. did i miss out? i quite enjoy it. i also put the pepper/ capsicum in with the anon and a bit of zucchini. i like this recipe, it having so many good elements- grain free, if you down use corn, all the fibre etc, and no eggs. suitable for vegans- i was vegan, now back to vegetarian, and don’t want to eat too much cholesterol..
Hi Lisette – thanks for your comment – we are so glad you enjoy the recipe:-)
