Gluten-Free Almond Butter Zucchini Muffins

Today we have a WINNING recipe for you so that you can WIN in your nutrition and WIN in life!

Today’s WINNING recipe to meet Coach JC’s 10 WINNING Habits is Gluten-Free Almond Butter Zucchini Muffins. Where are my veggies?


1 cup zucchini, grated
1 cup creamy almond butter
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 large eggs
1/2 tablespoon chia seeds
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons dark chocolate chips or chunks (certified gluten-free if necessary)


Pre-heat oven to 375°F (191°C) and prepare a mini muffin tin by spraying well with cooking spray, or line the tins with paper liners. Set aside.

Add all ingredients except chocolate chips into a medium-sized mixing bowl and stir until well combined. Gently stir in chocolate chips. Fill each muffin cavity about ¾ full with the muffin mixture.

Bake for 7-8 minutes, or until the tops are set and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean without any batter. Allow muffins to cool for 5-10 minutes or until they are firm enough and cool enough to handle. Remove from tin and let cool completely on a wire rack. If they’re sticking at all, use a butter knife to go along the rim of the muffin tin to help you detach the muffin from the tin and get them out in one piece.

Muffins are always best fresh, but these will keep airtight in the fridge for about 5 days, or in the freezer for up to 4 months.

Note: The tops of the muffins rise nicely in the oven but will deflate a bit as they cool. I also noticed that the top of the muffins stay a little moist. For this reason I recommend storing the leftover muffins in an airtight container in the fridge or the freezer. They freeze really nicely and you can quickly thaw them in the toaster oven or by just letting them sit out at room temperature for a bit.

    I got my start as the youngest Director of Strength & Conditioning at the Division I level at Oral Roberts University and have been blessed to COACH professional athletes from the NFL, NBA, MLB, MLS, and WNBA through Dynamic Sports Development. As an ENTREPRENEUR I then started Bootcamp Tulsa to help women WIN in their Fitness, Nutrition & in Life. On a daily basis I now run our Non-Profit, 501 (c) (3), Fit First Responders serving those that serve us everyday, our Police Officers, Firefighters, Medics and national Guard.

    If I'm not helping people WIN through my Performance Coaching you will find me motivating people on stage through my MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKING in churches, companies, universities and athletic organizations. I even took some of that motivation and combined it with a winning game plan to author a few books. I love helping people WIN but there is nothing I'm more passionate about then being a FATHER to my beautiful daughter and a HUSBAND to my hot wife."
