Protein Powder Zucchini Bread and Muffins

Craving protein and veggies but want a treat? Try zucchini bread/muffins!

Zucchini sneaks in hidden vitamins, minerals, and moisture. Made with simple ingredients like eggs, flour, and cocoa powder, these low-carb, gluten-free, and sugar-free treats are perfect for breakfast, snacks, or dessert. They’re moist, delicious, and keep you feeling full for longer.

Zucchini is a versatile vegetable that adds moisture and fiber to baked goods, without adding much calories or carbs. It also helps you get more vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin A, vitamin C, potassium, and magnesium. Plus, zucchini is easy to find and inexpensive, especially in the summer when it’s in season.


To boost protein and satiety without added sugar or gluten, protein powder joins the party! Simply combine it with eggs, flour, cocoa powder, and other pantry staples (oil, honey, vanilla extract) for a simple mixing process. Here’s the drill: mix wet and dry ingredients separately, then fold in the shredded zucchini before baking in muffins or a loaf pan. The result? Delicious protein-packed goodness!
