Superhero Muffins

Makes 12 muffins

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups almond meal
  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup raisns
  • 1/2 cup chopped dates
  • 3 eggs beaten
  • 1 cup grated zucchini
  • 1 cup grated carrots
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 oz. coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

  • Position a rack in the center of the oven.  Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Line a 12-cup standard muffin tin with paper muffin cups.
  • In a large bowl, combine the almond meal, oats, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, salt, and walnuts, raisins, and dates.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together the eggs, zucchini, carrots, butter, coconut oil, maple syrup, and vanilla.  Add to the dry ingredients, mixing until just combined.  The batter will be thick.
  • Spoon the batter into the muffin cups, filling each to the brim.  Bake until the muffins are nicely browned on top and a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean, 25-35 minutes.
