Zucchini Banana Cocoa Muffins

14 May

Yup that is a bit of a mouthful of a name.  I had some over-ripe bananas and some extra zucchini that I hadn’t got around to using.  A little searching on pinterest (are we ready to start use “pinteresting”?) and I came across The First Mess, which is another brilliant food blog full of yummy veggie and vegan food.  These brownies have me thinking of doing a vegan June…

I didn’t have all the ingredients for the original so made a few changes.  They are really moist and I am looking forward to my mid-morning snack every day this week.

Zucchini Banana Chocolate Muffin

Adapted from The First Mess

Ingredients

  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1 cup oat milk
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil (melted)
  • 2 cup spelt flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 grated zucchini
  • 1/2 cup chopped pistachio nuts

Method

  1. Blend bananas, milk and coconut oil
  2. Combine dry ingredients
  3. Add wet to dry and stir in zucchini
  4. Put into greased muffin tin and cook on 180°C for about 20 minutes

Makes 12

p.s. I really need to start baking things aside from muffins so I can take prettier food pictures.  It is the only reason for baking right?
