Superhero Muffins

I felt like I was getting fat this summer. The answer to my weight issue was to get a scale and weight myself every morning. Not fun. What is fun is seeing how small food changes make a difference in my weight. I hate being 30 and having to worry about staying healthy and thin. Ok, fine, I’m actually 31. These muffins are one of the treasures found in my quest for healthy food options. I love baked goods, and my best friend bought me the cookbook “Run Fast, Eat Slow.”  I have not mastered either, but this is a recipe I have made three times already. My girls eat the muffins because we add chocolate chips to the batter. I freeze extras, and pull them out the morning  Heat for 20-30 seconds in the microwave and they taste like they are fresh from the oven. Enjoy!

Fuel up for the day with this power house muffin-full of ingredients that will make you feel good.


2 cups almond meal
1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (I skipped)
1/2 cup currants or raisins, optional (I skipped)
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
3 eggs, beaten
1 cup grated zucchini (about 1 zucchini)
1 cup grated carrot (about 2 carrots)
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup Grade B maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla
paper muffin cups


Arrange a rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a 12-cup standard muffin tin with paper muffin cups.

In a large bowl, combine the almond meal, oats, walnuts, currants or raisins, if using, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, and salt.

In a separate bowl, mix together the eggs, zucchini, carrot, butter, maple syrup, and vanilla.

Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, mixing until just combined.

Spoon the batter into the muffin cups filling each to the brim. Bake until the muffins are nicely browned on top and a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean, about 25 to 35 minutes.

A note: Almond Flour is jus flour made from grinding blanched almonds. Find it at the store in the health food area or in the normal baking aisle. I t has gained in popularity so most stores carry it. I like to buy the bag that has a resealable bag and after it has been opened, keep it in the refrigerator.
