Protein Zucchini Apricot Nut Muffins


These muffins are to die for!  So light, fluffy and moist.  And guess what?  They're grain-free, packed full of protein, loaded with veggies and only sweetened with nature's finest.  Need more convincing?  They do have a high fat content, BUT healthy fats!  And one won't screw up your macros for the day (I promise). :)  Enjoy!


Recipe:

2 cups almond flour
1/2 cup vanilla protein powder (unsweetened)
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
3 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup honey (more or less depending on how many sugar/carbs you want)
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup grated zucchini (leave skin on for more nutrients)
1/5 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup chopped apricots

Mix everything together in a bowl, then add walnuts and apricots.  Pour into lined muffin tin, about 3/4 full.  Bake for roughly 20 minutes or until golden brown and toothpick comes out clean.  Makes 9.
