Zucchini Muffins (Gluten, Oil & Sugar free)

These Zucchini Muffins are healthy enough to eat for breakfast, since I replaced the sugar and oil with banana and apple sauce. Yet sweet and delicious enough to have as a snack or sweet treat! They are really easy to make. Just add everything in a blender and fold in the zucchini in the end. Not are they only made with healthy ingredients, but you also get that extra dose of vegetables without even thinking about it.

Since I used banana and apple sauce these muffins are really moist and sweet. The zucchini also adds additional moist to them. But if you prefer them even sweeter (taste the batter) you can just add a bit of coconut or regular sugar.

Ingredients for these Zucchini Muffins:

  • Gluten free all purpose flour
  • Banana
  • Apple
  • Zucchini
  • Cinnamon
  • Egg
  • Baking powder
