Description

These Chocolate Chip Zucchini Muffins are the perfect baked good for summertime! They’re paleo, AIP, and an all-around healthier treat.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1/2 cup banana, mashed
  • 1 cup zucchini, peeled and shredded (and squeezed to remove excess water)
  • 1/4 cup + 1 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 cup tigernut flour
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 cup water + 1 tbsp gelatin (sub 1 egg)
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips (omit or sub carob for AIP)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 F and line a 12 cup muffin pan with 7-8 muffin liners. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, mash the banana and combine with the zucchini, maple syrup, and coconut oil.
  3. Combine the dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Pour in the wet ingredients and mix well to combine.
  4. Use 1 regular egg if tolerated, or prepare the gelatin egg by pouring the water into a small pot and sprinkling over the gelatin. Allow hardening for 2-3 minutes. Add the pot to the stove top set to low heat and allow to melt and return to liquid. This should take 1-2 minutes. Once liquid, whisk vigorously until frothy. Add to the batter mixture and stir well to combine.
  5. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  6. Fill the muffins liners about 3/4 of the way full with batter. Top off with a few more chocolate chips if desired.
  7. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes or until the muffins are lightly golden brown and a when a toothpick is inserted, it comes out clean.
  8. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely (set for 1-2 hours in the fridge if gelatin egg is used) before serving.
