  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 cup mashed banana

  1. First, preheat oven to 350ºF and line a muffin tin with muffin liners. We suggest also spraying your muffin liners with cooking spray just in case.
  2. Next, place dry ingredients into a large bowl and mix to combine. Then, add in all of the wet ingredients minus the coconut oil and mix to combine. Add melted coconut oil and mix again.
  3. Fill each muffin about 3/4 of the way full (these are going to be big, fluffy muffins). Add optional chocolate chips to the top. Then, place in the oven at 350ºF and bake for 18-24 minutes or until the center is fully cooked.
  4. Let cool for 5 minutes before removing from the muffin tin to continue cooling.

Tips & Notes

  • Coarsely grated zucchini– use a coarse grate cheese grater to grate your zucchini. Keep the skin on and grate zucchini. Next, place grated zucchini in the middle of a tea towel or cheesecloth and ring out as much moisture as possible. Then, measure 1 cup.
  • Nutrition information does not include chocolate chips.
