My favorite muffin recipe is a chocolate chip orange zucchini bread recipe found on Allrecipes! But when I had to cut out dairy and gluten, I had to get creative to get the same satisfaction out of a healthier version. These turned out great! Be sure to add the glaze - it really makes the muffin.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a muffin tin with cooking spray.
Mix almond flour, chocolate chips, coconut flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg together in a small bowl.
Beat eggs in a large bowl with an electric mixer until light and frothy. Add brown sugar, almond oil, maple syrup, 1 teaspoon orange zest, and vanilla extract; mix well. Stir in zucchini. Fold in almond flour mixture until well blended. Thin batter with almond milk if it appears too thick.
Divide batter among prepared muffin cups.
Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 20 to 22 minutes. Let cool for 2 to 3 minutes.
Combine confectioners' sugar, orange juice, and 1 teaspoon orange zest in a bowl; beat with an electric mixer on high speed until glaze is smooth. Spoon glaze over muffins. Let stand for 5 minutes; transfer to a wire rack to cool.

The best flavour of the flour can make a real difference to your bread. Different makers do vary. Extra-strong or Canadian flours, which are bet higher in gluten, may give you a better rise than standard dough flours – especially if you’re make wholemeal dough , which doesn’t always getting bigger as well as white bread.
To make this in a breadmaker , add all the menus to your breadmaker and follow the makers instructions.
A dough’s first rising can be done in the fridge overnight . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great limit , as you can work it night before , then clear it off the next day.
