gluten-free | grain-free | dairy-free | egg-free | Paleo | vegan
- 2 cups cashews, ground into a flour (or almond flour)
- 1 cup cassava flour
- 1/4 cup coconut sugar or Sucanat (only coconut sugar is Paleo)
- 1/4 cup arrowroot
- 1 Tbsp ground psyllium husks
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup avocado oil (or melted coconut oil or almond oil)
- 1/4 cup honey (agave syrup for vegan muffins)
- 1/2 cup applesauce
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 2 1/2 cups shredded zucchini (about 1 medium zucchini)
- 3/4 cup walnut pieces
Preheat oven to 350 degrees farenheit.
If using ground cashews, grind into a flour in a food processor (do in two batches if using the food processor portion of a Ninja Master Prep).
Wisk together the dry ingredients. Wisk together wet ingredients in a separate bowl. Pour the wet into the dry and wisk before switching to a sturdy spoon. Fold in the shredded zucchini and then the walnuts and spoon into muffin cups.
Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
