Zucchini Muffins or Birthday Cake

February14

Hello world!  Oh my – let’s quickly address that it has been almost 2 YEARS since my last post.  Why?  Well – let’s just pretend like I didn’t cook anything, eat anything, or have a problem with anything in the food industry and move on… No time to waste.

Here is my recipe for Zucchini Muffins that I have been asked about relentlessly for months now…  These are very popular in our house and I almost ALWAYS have a batch of them made either for us or to bring somewhere. They are Vegan, and Candida friendly (yeah – you missed that whole food journey in blog post form.) They are also incredibly fast and easy to make and even faster and easier to swallow.  I recently had a few of my very favorite girlfriends over and I had literally just made a batch of these for my boys right before my friends arrived.  I casually offered one up to them thinking “why would they want a zucchini muffin when there’s chocolate?  But I’ll throw it out there to be polite.”  Well, those ladies ate EVERY SINGLE LAST ONE before either of my boys were able to even see that they were there.  I was pleased.  I made a new batch the next day…

Brown is Beautiful!

Here is the most asked for recipe I have ever typed up:

Preheat oven to 350°
Mix the following ORGANIC ingredients together:
1/2 Cup Applesauce
3/4 Cup Coconut Palm Sugar
1.5 Cups Grated Zucchini (you can also replace this with grated Carrot if you want!)
then add
1.5 Cups Spelt Flour
1/2 Tsp Baking Powder
1/2 Tsp Baking Soda
1/2 Tsp Sea Salt
1/2 Cup Sunflower Oil

Spray muffin tins with Coconut Oil (I use use Trader Joe’s – it’s not labeled organic, but the oil is organic – so it’s organic)
Split batter up evenly (my pan makes 12 muffins)
Bake for 25 min.
Wait for about 2-3 min after removing from oven then flip over tray and dump them out onto a cooling rack.  Let them cool or just start eating them!  They are the best right out of the oven without a doubt.  I don’t refrigerate mine – mainly because they don’t usually last long.  But if they sit out for more than 3 days they will start to taste curious.  So either put them in the fridge or in a covered dish and eat them soon!

Side note: The inside joke here is that we eat these for any and every reason in our house – breakfast, lunch, late night snack, and if you don’t have time to make a birthday cake – just stick a candle in your zucchini muffin and you’re ready to celebrate.  Versatile AND festive.
Enjoy!
