These Keto Ham Zucchini Muffins fit the bill perfectly, and with an added parmesan kick are really tasty.

Ingredients for Keto Ham & Zucchini Muffins

You will need:

  • Zucchini
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Ham
  • Eggs
  • Sour cream
  • Almond flour
  • Baking powder
  • Salt and pepper

Substitutions and Ingredient tips

In trying to keep the carbs down, I have limited the almond flour to 1 cup across 12 muffins so they are definitely quite moist from the zucchini.

If you wanted them with a drier texture, you could increase the almond flour to 1 1/2 cups, or squeeze the liquid out of the zucchini.

Ain’t no one here got time for that! 🙂

I cooked these for 35 – 40 minute to get a nice crispy top, and using silicone cup cake moulds made clean up quick and easy. You could try some different add ins like oregano, basil, paprika, or bacon instead of the ham.

I have been using pre-cut ham from Aldi lately but any ham will do. 4This is great recipe to use up whatever is left in your fridge at the end of the week around cheese, sour cream, bacon or ham and veggies. Nothing is stopping you from putting some broccoli or cauliflower in there as well!

I have also tried these Keto Ham Zucchini Muffins for breakfast, with an egg and some bacon to soak up all of the runny yolks and it was a delicious addition. They also freeze really well.

Tips for making Keto Ham & Zucchini Muffins

Here’s the step-by-step cooking instruction

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C / 356F and prepare a 12 cup muffin tin with silicone liners if you have them. 
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the grated zucchini, cheese, ham, eggs and sour cream until well mixed. 
  3. In a separate smaller bowl, mix the almond flour, baking powder, salt and pepper, ensuring you break down any lumps in the almond flour and distribute the baking powder evenly. 
  4. Combine the wet and dry ingredients and distribute across the 12 muffin tins. 
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 35 – 40 minutes or until golden brown on top and allow to cool for 5 minutes before serving or freezing.

Storage tips

Fridge: You can store these in the fridge for around a week. As they are quite moist, I like to put some paper towel in an air tight container to stop them getting too soggy.

Freezer: The freeze ok, but texture can change due to the high water content of the zucchini. Definitely best made and eaten fresh.
