1 cup grated zucchini

1 cup grated peeled sweet potato or yam

3 eggs

1/3 cup maple syrup or honey

1/2 cup virgin coconut oil, melted

1-1/2 cups rolled oats

1 cup oat flour

1 cup almond flour or almond meal

1/2 cup chopped walnuts or chocolate chips (optional)

2 tsp ground cinnamon

1 tsp baking soda

3/4 tsp fine sea salt

1/2 tsp ground nutmeg, cardamom or ginger


1. Position rack in center of oven, preheat to 350F. Line a 12 cup standard muffin tin or  24 cup mini muffin tin with paper liners.

2.  In a large bowl, combine the zucchini, sweet potato, eggs, maple syrup, and melted coconut oil and whisk thoroughly to combine.

3.  Add the oats, oat flour, almond flour, walnuts, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, and nutmeg. Stir with a rubber spatula until combined; the batter will be thick.

4. Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling each to the brim.  Bake until the muffins are nicely browned on top and a knife inserted into the center comes out clean, 25-30 mins for large muffins or 20-25 min for mini muffins.  

5.  Store leftover muffins in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week or in the freezer for up to 3 months.  Reheat in the oven at 300F for 10 min or microwave on low power for 30 seconds.
