Paleo Zucchini choc chip muffins



0 portion(s)

  • Coconut oil, for greasing, (or silicon moulds)
  • 50 grams almonds
  • 2 medium zucchini
  • 4 eggs
  • 105 grams Coconut Oil (melted)
  • 105 grams Maple syrup
  • 60 grams cacao powder
  • 2 heaped tablespoon Coconut Flour
  • 60 grams cacao nibs
  • 1 vanilla pod, split and scraped, (or 2 tsp of vanilla essence)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon gluten-free baking powder
  • pinch of pink salt
  • 12-18 raspberries or blueberries (fresh or frozen), 1 to top each muffin

Recipe's preparation

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 180 deg. Grease muffin tray or place silicon moulds into muffin tin.

    2. Place almonds into TM bowl, 9 sec/sp9. Set aside.

    3. Place zucchini into TM bowl, 2 sec/sp5. scrape sides of bowl then another 2 sec/sp5. Place zucchini into nut milk bag (or mesh seive, clean tea towl) and twist to remove excess liquid. (mix this in your next smoothie for a green nutrient boost).

    4. Place zucchini, ground almonds and all other ingreadients (except raspberries) into the TM bowl on 5 sec/sp4.5. Scrape down sides and if not mixed through, mix for another second. (The batter should have a nice consistency, and should smell and look quite chocolatey)

    5. Spoon batter into each mini muffin hole (or mould) to about 2/3rds full. Top each muffin with a raspberry and push into batter.

    6. Cook for 15-20 mins or until skewer inserted into a centre comes out clean. 

    7. Remove from oven and allow to cool (if you can wait).
