Serves: 12 Muffins
Ingredients
  • 1 cup gluten free oat flour or ground gluten free rolled oats
  • 1¼ cups grated zucchini, excess moisture removed
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • ¾ cup natural creamy peanut butter (I usually use MaraNatha)
  • 2 tbsp mini semi sweet chocolate chips + 1 tsp for topping
  • 2 tbsp mini M&Ms + 1 tsp for topping
  • 2 tsp gluten free rolled oats for topping
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. If you are making your own oat flour put 1 cup gf rolled oats in the food processor. Process on high for 45-60 seconds to make your flour.
  3. Put the oat flour into a separate bowl and set aside.
  4. To the bowl of the food processor add zucchini, eggs, peanut butter, vanilla, and maple syrup. Process on high until it becomes a very smooth mixture.
  5. Add the baking soda, salt, and cinnamon to the ground oats and stir to combine.
  6. Add the dry mixture to the food processor and process on high, just until combined.
  7. Add in 2 tbsp of mini M&Ms and 2 tbsp of mini chips. I just pulse them in quickly, but if you don't want to break up the chips and M&Ms you can stir them in.
  8. Grease a muffin tin very well with cooking spray.
  9. Divide the batter evenly into the muffin tin.
  10. Use the remaining 2 tsp of oats, 1 tsp of chips, and 1 tsp m&Ms to top the muffins.
  11. Bake for 13-15 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.
