Take these chocolate zucchini muffins. I made them to serve my family for breakfast in place of cereal. I wanted them to be refined sugar free, filled with protein and whole grains, and vegetables. Oh, and I wanted them to be super awesome.
I based these off of this recipe, transforming it to make it gluten free, vegan, refined sugar free, etc... and the results were amazing.
My only regrets is that I need to order more coconut sugar from iherb before I can make these again...
I loved serving these for breakfast. My kids loved them and I had absolutely no guilt about serving them this "treat".
If you want to keep these gluten full, feel free to replace the first 6 ingredients with 2 cups of gluten flour. You can also use any other gluten free all purpose flour mix- you don't need to use these exact measurements like I did- just follow these rules if you want to mix up your own gluten free flour mix.
And of course, if you want to keep the costs down, you can replace the coconut sugar with white sugar.
This makes 24 muffins.
While my husband was very skeptical at first about zucchini with chocolate, in baked goods... these won him over and he approved.
