Dairy- and Gluten-Free Zucchini Orange Chocolate Chip Muffins

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.



Step: 1

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

Step: 2

Mix almond flour, chocolate chips, coconut flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg together in a small bowl.

Step: 3

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.

Step: 4

Divide batter among prepared muffin cups.

Step: 5

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.

Step: 6

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.
