Flourless Zucchini Apple Muffins

zucchini apple muffinsThese super moist paleograin & gluten free muffins are scrumptious.  My hubby gets downright giddy when he finds out that I’m making these flourless zucchini muffins.   I make these the night before so we have a quick breakfast option in the morning.  So, when my hubby returns home from his 6am Crossfit class to get ready for work; he can just grab these muffins and go.  

I have made these muffins using freshly ground almond butter or peanut butter, both versions are delicious.

Have issues getting your little one to eat fruits and veggies?  Then, whip these up and watch your little one gobble these delicious muffins.

  1. This sounds great!! Do you think adding pumpkin to it would be any good?

  2. By “medium” zucchini, about how much shredded do you end up with? I have garden fresh and I suspect they are a bit bigger than “medium”
    Thanks! I look forward to trying these ones!
