Zucchini Muffins with PB Frosting
Craving a treat? Don't want to break the macro bank? These macro-friendly muffins will do the trick!!
240 grams raw zucchini, grated
1 large egg
1/4 cup (40g) coconut palm sugar
1 cup (125g) spelt flour
1/2 cup (50g) organic cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking soda (I didn't have baking powder)
2 tsp cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 F, grease or line muffin tins
Mix all ingredients in a bowl. I found that using my hands was the easiest way.
Spoon in to muffin tins (I got 9 muffins of 50g each)
Bake for about 15 minutes or until bouncy to the touch.
Peanut Butter Frosting
2 tbps walden farms peanut butter
2 tablespoons powdered peanut butter of choice
Mix together until fully blended
Spread like frosting on top of muffins.
These taste fantastic when warm - so either eat them fresh out of the oven or warm them up before eating!
MACROS for 1 muffin, no frosting (out of 9)
A friend of mine who gave me the original recipe swapped a banana for the sugar and used chickpea flour (I only had spelt in the pantry). Hers looked prettier than mine!
