 2 cups almond flour
 2 tsp cinnamon
 1 tsp sea salt
 2 tsp baking soda
 2 eggs
 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
 1 ripe banana, mashed
 ½ cup almond butter, no sugar added
 2 tsp vanilla extract
 2 cups grated zucchini, squeeze out excess liquid



Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray muffin tins with nonstick cooking spray.


In a small bowl, whisk together dry ingredients: almond flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt.


In a medium bowl, stir together the wet ingredients: eggs, applesauce, mashed banana, and vanilla extract. Once smooth, add in dry ingredient mixture and stir until blended well.


Pour batter into muffin pan.


Bake muffins in preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until an inserted knife comes out clean. Remove muffins from muffin tin carefully and cool on wire rack. They may be a little soft but will firm up as they cool on rack. After muffins are cool, store in a closed container or freeze after a few days.
