Superhero Muffins

Y'all these muffins are the!!!  You know I have a sweet tooth and the fact that they're gluten free, have chocolate chips AND lots of hidden veggies is just unreal!  =)  OK, well actually the recipe called for raisins and nuts but we're not a fan of those in our baked goods so we added chocolate chips instead!  Other than that we followed the recipe as is and they have become a staple in our house!  They were kid tested and mommy approved and I know you'll like them just as much as we did!  The recipe comes from my new favorite cookbook...Run Fast Eat Slow.  

Recipe below and here's a video of us making them and taste testing them for the first time...

  • 2 cups almond meal 
  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats (use gluten-free if sensitive)
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup currants or raisins, optional
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda 
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup grated zucchini (about 1 zucchini)
  • 1 cup grated carrot (about 2 carrots)
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted 
  • 1/2 cup Grade B maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla 
  • paper muffin cups
Arrange a rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a 12-cup standard muffin tin with paper muffin cups. 
In a large bowl, combine the almond meal, oats, walnuts, currants or raisins, if using, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, and salt.  
In a separate bowl, mix together the eggs, zucchini, carrot, butter, maple syrup, and vanilla.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, mixing until just combined. 
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 in the center of a muffin comes out clean, about 25 to 35 minutes.  

Tip: Keep a batch in the freezer for a sweet grab-n-run breakfast. Defrost on low power in the microwave.

ENJOY and let me know what you think!  I highly recommend this cookbook because this is just 1 of many delicious things we've tried lately!
