The batter for these healthy gluten-free zucchini muffins comes together in a flash in your blender. And these tasty treats are baked in a mini muffin tin, so they're the perfect snack or quick breakfast. The chocolate chips are an optional but excellent addition.

  • Pulse oats in a blender until finely ground. Add baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda and salt; pulse once or twice to blend. Add zucchini, eggs, brown sugar, oil and vanilla; puree until smooth. (The batter will be wet.) Stir in chocolate chips, if using. Fill the prepared muffin cups.

  • Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 15 to 17 minutes. Cool in the pan on a wire rack for 5 minutes, then turn out to cool completely.

Tips

Tip: People with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity should use oats that are labeled "gluten-free," as oats are often cross-contaminated with wheat and barley.

I’ve been trying various zucchini bread recipes this year to use up the non-stop zucchini supply from my garden. I’m eating the first of these muffins now, fresh from the oven, and I know right away that this recipe is one of my favorites. I love the flavor the oats provide, and the texture is very tender. Perhaps best of all is the ease of making them and the cleanup! Live that they are made in a blender. I skipped the chocolate chips, but added a few chopped pecans for texture and they turned out just scrumptious. These will be wonderful for filling my freezer with healthy treats for the next few months. Thanks for an easy, quick and delicious recipe! Read More

Love them very moist...however I replaced the canola oil for coconut oil and the sugar for Stevia because I cannot eat sugar. I didn t use chocolate chips but added a couple of tablespoons of pepitas...Delicious Read More
