Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup melted coconut oil or sub with your favorite oil
  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar or sub with granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened almond milk or sub with your favorite milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups oat flour
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups grated zucchini 1/2 lb. zucchini
  • 1/3 cup dairy free mini chocolate chips

Instructions 

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Place (12) paper liners in the cavities of a standard muffin pan.
  • In a large bowl, whisk the melted coconut oil, coconut sugar and eggs vigorously until frothy, about 1 minute. Add the almond milk and vanilla, whisking well to combine.
  • Add the oat flour, rolled oats, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda and salt, and whisk until well combined, then fold in the zucchini and chocolate chips until incorporated.
  • Divide the batter evenly between the (12) muffin cups and bake on the middle rack in the oven for 15-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Cool the muffins in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes, then carefully remove from the pan and allow to cool completely. Serve and enjoy!

Notes

  • Pro tip: I grated my zucchini right into a large measuring cup so that I only needed one bowl.  The zucchini may be prepped 1-2 days in advance until you're ready to get baking. There's no need to squeeze and excess liquid from the zucchini as well, which is a nice time saver.
  • I added the 1/2 cup rolled oats for added texture.  If you don't have any on hand, substitute with an additional 1/2 cup oat flour.
  • Top the muffins with walnuts for added crunch!
