Savory Zucchini Mini Muffins

These savory muffins go really well with a drizzle of honey. My family loves them, and if I want extra muffins for freezing, I need to make two batches since we eat a whole batch at once.

In this video tutorial, I also show a modified version using partly garbanzo bean flour. (Have you subscribed to my youtube channel?)

A few tips for making these muffins.
1. This recipe was created using whole wheat flour. If you substitute whole wheat flour with other more moist flour such as almond flour, the muffins might not cook thoroughly at around 20 minutes point.
2. Position rack in the middle to avoid the top and bottom from burning.
3. Use thick yogurt such as Greek yogurt for this recipe.

  • 1/2 cup full-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese or Mexican-blend cheese


  1. Position rack in the middle and preheat oven to 350F
  2. Shred 1 zucchini with a coarse grater. One large zucchini will make about 2 cups.

  4. In a separate bowl, mix milk and greek yogurt.
  5. Whisk an egg. Mix whisked egg with milk and greek yogurt.

  7. Add grated zucchini and cheddar cheese. Gently combine.
  8. Grease a mini muffin tin.
  9. Spoon batter equally into the cups. Cookie scoop (1.5 tbsp) works well for this task.
  10. Bake for about 20 minutes until the top is golden brown and an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
  11. (optional) Drizzle honey on top.
