Ingredients

  • 3 Cups Almond meal (10.5 oz)*
  • 1 Tbsp Ground cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp Ground Cardamom
  • 2 tsp Baking powder
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Baking soda
  • 1 1/2 Cups Monk fruit sweetener
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 1/2 Cup Tahini
  • 5 Tbsp Unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 2 Cups Grated zucchini, packed (about 2 medium zucchinis)

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and adjust the oven rack to one level below the middle. Spray a muffin pan with cooking spray.
  • In a medium bowl, stir together the almond meal, cinnamon, cardamom, baking powder, salt and soda and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, using an electric hand mixer, beat together the monk fruit, eggs, tahini, almond milk and vanilla extract until well combined.
  • Add the dry mixture into the wet mixture and stir until combined and a thick batter forms.  Finally, gently fold in the grated zucchini until evenly mixed.
  • Divide the mixture between 12 muffin cavities, filling to the top. I like to use a large ice cream scoop, as this gives them that really nice, domed top!
  • Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 20-22 minutes. Let cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Then, transfer to a wire rack to cool COMPLETELY.
  • DEVOUR!

Notes

*As with all gluten free baking, PLEASE weigh your flour to ensure accurate results
