Keto Ham & Zucchini Muffins

Keto Ham & Zucchini Muffins

Simple snacks and lunches are the best kind in my house! I want something for lunch that I can grab out of the fridge or freezer in the morning, chuck it in a container and off I go. These Keto Ham Zucchini Muffins fit the bill perfectly, and with an added parmesan kick are really tasty.


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. This 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.

  • Hi, love your recipes and your blog! How much zucchini is needed for this recipe? In the US there are so many different sizes, lol, and with keto i dont dare make a guess.

    • Good question!! I would say an ‘average’ zucchini here (not those home grown monsters) would be about 20 – 25cm long or around 9 – 10 inches. A little bit extra never hurts, as long as you squeeze out some moisture 🙂

        Delicious. I took these to an afternoon tea and they were consumed within minutes… I received lots of positive comments.. Just added a little red capsicum and probably took about 28minutes in my oven. These will definitely be a “go to” for me. Thanx

  • These are the absolute bomdig! My wife loves them and I am on constant baking duty making them for her to take as a work lunch! ha ha Thank you for your recipes!!

    • One slice should work ok – I’d bake it a bit lower and slower to ensure it cooks through. Cream cheese shoulld work ok too 🙂

  • I made this as a loaf in the slow cooker. Takes about 2 hours. You don’t get a crispy top (I could have finished it off using the grill), but was delicious. Will be making it again.

    The reason I made it in the slow cooker was to avoid the oven, as it’s a stinky hot day and didn’t want the house to heat up.

  • Hi,
    I just started on Keto and made these today and they are amazing !! Just wondering if it is 3g of carbs per muffin or do you subtract the fiver and sugar making it 1g ??
