You guys, most of the time I find “healthy” savory muffins pretty disgusting because they either taste weird (because of weird ingredients!) or super eggy and really…no, not for me thank you very much!

But these gluten-free zucchini muffins?! They’re sooo good! Not an ounce of weirdness or egginess (don’t mind me, I’m French so I’m allowed to invent English words if I want to ????).

The ingredients might not be very typical but these gluten-free savory muffins do NOT taste funky and they’re much more nutritious than the classic white flour ones.

And girls, have you tried the combo feta + chives in muffins before? Such a winner!

I love chives, they’re a bit like onions but not so intense and a bit fresher and more complex in flavor. The zucchini keeps these gluten-free muffins super moist while packing an extra serving of veggies.

These Gluten-free Zucchini Muffins are the perfect savory snack or breakfast to go!

I made these gluten-free zucchini muffins with breakfast in mind but I first baked them at my mom’s place when I was in Paris earlier in April.

She later served them as healthy appetizers to her friends (and they were a big hit she told me!). So, brekky or apps, you decide!

Whichever you choose, know that these muffins freeze really well so you can make a batch, freeze it and thaw as needed (on the counter or in the microwave).

Super convenient, especially if you tend to be super busy in the morning and need to grab something to eat on your way out! Enjoy! 🙂

  1. Feta and chives are a winning team and I am sure that the combination of yogurt and grated zucchini makes these muffins extra moist! I would love one of these with a bowl of tomato soup!
