love zucchini season! I use several zucchinis every week usually as a "pasta." I also like baking with zucchini because it makes the baked goods really moist without adding oil or butter. It's a great way to sneak in some extra veggies without your kids noticing! If your kids are like mine, they will not turn down anything chocolate!
I'm always looking for cookie or muffin recipes that my girls will like and that are low in sugar and can be made gluten, dairy and egg free. I found this recipe several months ago and I modified it to fit our dietary restrictions. I've made the sweet potato muffins using brown rice flour and maple syrup per the original recipe and they are delicious. However, since I'm on a no sugar diet at the moment I decided to try them with stevia, buckwheat and quinoa flour which are approved on a Body Ecology diet. They turned out amazing! I also used chia seeds instead of my usual flax for an egg substitute and that worked well too. You can add a small amount of chocolate chips or leave them out. I'm waiting for my sugar free chocolate (sweetened only with monk fruit extract, no sugar alcohols) to arrive in the mail so I was a little bit naughty and used a tiny amount of Guittard dark chocolate chips. I think I got about 2 chocolate chips in my muffin so I don't feel too guilty. If you're not on a candida diet, these would be amazing with raisins too. My little ones love these muffins! They don't last very long in our house.
