Applesauce-Zucchini Coconut Flour Muffins *

These muffins are so incredibly moist and delicious, they never last long in my house. So feel free to double the recipe if you like. You could also try frosting these muffins with whipped cream cheese frosting for an extra special treat.

  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup homemade cinnamon applesauce* (or, if not on the healing diet, organic store-bought cinnamon applesauce with no added-sugar or preservatives)
  • 1/2 stick (1/4 cup) butter, melted (can also use virgin coconut oil)
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour, sifted
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • dash (1/8 teaspoon) ground nutmeg
  • dash (1/8 teaspoon) NuNaturals NuStevia™ White Stevia™ Powder
  • 1/2 cup shredded zucchini
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts

Heat oven to 375°F. Grease and flour 6 cups in a muffin pan with a generous amount of butter or un-melted coconut oil and coconut flour, this is very important because the muffins will stick if you don’t.

Beat the eggs with a wire whisk, in a large bowl, until mixed. Add the salt, vanilla, and applesauce; mix until combined. Next slowly add the butter in a continuous stream while continuing to whisk.

In another bowl mix together the dry ingredients – coconut flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and stevia.

Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix with a spoon until thoroughly combined. Gently fold the shredded zucchini and chopped walnuts into the batter.

Divide the batter in your prepared muffin cups. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, until done – tops and edges of muffins will be light golden brown, and a toothpick inserted in center of muffin will come out mostly clean (these muffins are very moist so a few crumbs may come out on the toothpick).

Makes 6 muffins.

Whipped Cream-Cheese Frosting *

In the bowl of an electric mixer beat the cream cheese, stevia, and vanilla until creamy. (It is preferable to use the whisk attachment of a stand mixer, but you may use a hand mixer if that is all you have available.)

Slowly beat in the milk until the mixture is nice and fluffy. Frost cupcakes, muffins, or mini-loaves as desired.
