I thought you guys needed a gift, so I'm sending it to you in the form of a muffin. Or, rather, a MUFFIN RECIPE!! This muffin has it all! It's clean full of veggies, filling, and DELICIOUS! WIN! Oh, and definitely kid-approved and lunchbox-worthy.
2 cups almond flour 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats 2 teaspoons cinnamon ½ teaspoon nutmeg 1 tablespoon chia seeds 1 teaspoon baking soda ½ teaspoon sea salt ½ cup chopped walnuts (optional) ½ cup chopped dates, raisins, chocolate chips (optional) 3 eggs, beaten 1 cup grated zucchini 1 cup grated carrots 6 tablespoons unsalted butter ½ cup pure maple syrup 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Preheat the oYven to 350 degrees.
- In a large bowl, combine the almond flour, oats, cinnamon, chia seeds, nutmeg, baking soda, salt and walnuts, raisins, dates, or chocolate chips (if using).
- In a separate bowl, mix together the eggs, zucchini, carrots, butter, maple syrup, and vanilla. Add the dry ingredients, mixing until just combined. The batter will be thick.
- Spoon the batter into the muffin cups, filling each to the brim. Bake until the muffins are nicely browned on top and a toothpick inserted comes out clean, 25-35 minutes.
