Cranberries and chocolate pair beautifully in this keto muffin. The tartness of the cranberries accents the smooth decadence of the cocoa. These Keto-friendly Cranberry Chocolate Zucchini Muffins are simply divine.
Straight out of the oven my hubby commented that they had a ganache like texture in the center. The whole family absolutely loved these healthy bites!
Cranberry Chocolate Zucchini Muffins — Keto Friendly
My favorite aspect of this recipe is how well cocoa pairs with cranberries. The chocolate balances out the tartness — and minimal sweetener is necessary.
What you will need for this recipe:
- Sweetener of Choice
- Almond Flour
- Ground Flax
- Chocolate Chips
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 tbsp vanilla extract
- 3 tbsp of lakanto granulated sweetener (or sweetener of choice)
- 1/4 cup of cocoa powder
- 1/4 cup almond flour
- 1/4 cup ground flax
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 2 tbsp melted butter butter
- 1 small shredded zucchini
- 3/4 cup of Cape Cod cranberries
- 1/4 cup of Choc Zero chocolate chips
- Preheat the oven to 350
- Shred the zucchini into a colander. You want to allow the zucchini to sit for 15 minutes for some water to drain off. Slice the frozen cranberries (they are much easier to slice when frozen). Place the cranberries on top of the zucchini to defrost, while the zucchini drains.
- Mix together the egg, vanilla extract, and sweetener and whisk.
- Combine the dry ingredients cocoa, almond flour, flax, and baking powder.
- Add the melted butter to the egg mixture and whisk until combined.
- Combine the wet and dry ingredients and whisk.
- Fold in the shredded zucchini, cranberries, and chocolate chips.
- Fold until all the ingredients are well incorporated.
- Fill 12 muffin liners with the batter
- Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
- Let the muffins cool before enjoying on a rack
