The delightful combination of lemon, rosemary and zucchini is something else in these muffins. Made with almond meal or flour, they are extremely satisfying and a serving may be considered a safe quantity of almonds for those who are able to tolerate a small amount of almonds. They make a great addition to the lunchbox and freezer.
Lemon, Rosemary and Zucchini Muffins
- Prep Time
- Cook Time
- 1 1/2 cups grated zucchini
- 2 1/2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
- Grated rind of a lemon
- 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary
- 4 eggs
- 1/4 cup macadamia or melted coconut oil
- 2 tablespoons rice malt syrup
- 2 1/2 cups almond meal or flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder

- 2. Place 12 patty papers into a muffin tray or lightly grease a 12 hole muffin tin.
- 3. Place the lemon rind, juice and rosemary into a food processor bowl. Whizz until the lemon rind and rosemary is roughly cut. Alternatively, finely chop the rosemary and lemon rind and place in a large mixing bowl
- 4. Add the eggs, syrup and oil to bowl. Process or beat until smooth.
- 5. Add the zucchini, almond meal or flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt to the bowl. Process or mix briefly until the mixture is mixed together but not too long or the zucchini will be too finely chopped.
- 6. Pour or spoon the mixture into each patty paper or tray so that each is half full. Lightly tap the tray on the bench to smooth out the top.
- 7. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean or the muffin feels cooked when the top is lightly touched.
- 8. Serve warm or cold.
