Healthy Muffins, Happy Toddlers!

It is hard to believe after all my efforts I too am having trouble getting my boys to eat vegetables!  Ugh!  So, this morning I decided to concoct a muffin recipe that had no refined sugar, no gluten and would sneak in some healthy zucchini and they loved it!  You could easily add carrots to these or sweet potato.

Gluten-Free Banana, Date & Zucchini Muffins Recipe

Preheat Oven 375

3/4 cup dates
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 zucchini
2 eggs
2 bananas
1 t cinnamon
1/2 t nutmeg
1 t vanilla extract
1 cup oat flour
1/2 cup brown rice flour
1 t baking soda

Chop dates and melted coconut oil in a food processor or blender of some sort.  Then mix the date mixture with eggs, banana and zucchini (I put it all in the mixer and mixed until smooth).  Next add spices and vanilla. Then slowly add flours & baking soda, stirring gently with a spoon until mixture is combined.

Spoon mixture into oiled muffin tins and bake 10 minutes for mini muffins and about 15 minutes for regular sized.  Once they look done pop out of pan onto a cooling rack or serve warm with butter.  Enjoy.
