Ingredients

Dry Ingredients

  • 1 ¾ cups white whole wheat flour (215g) , or oat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Wet Ingredients

  • 1 medium avocado (150g weighed with skin and pit)
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • ½ cup whole milk plain Greek yogurt (115g)
  • 1 medium banana (130g without peel)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup grated zucchini (50g weighed after squeezing)
  • ½ cup grated carrots (45g weighed after squeezing)
  • Optional: Sweetener of choice (see note)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • In a large bowl, stir together the dry ingredients.
  • Add all the wet ingredients (minus zucchini and carrots) into the food processor/blender and blend until smooth. Pour into the dry ingredients.
  • Be careful not to over mix. Use a spatula (instead of a whisk) to gently stir together until all the flour is wet. Fold in the zucchini and carrots.
  • Divide batter evenly into a greased, lined or silicone 12-cup muffin pan. Bake for 20-22 minutes, or until the inserted toothpick comes out clean. Allow the muffins to cool for 3-5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Notes

  • Take the eggs and yogurt out of the refrigerator at least 15 minutes prior to cooking 
  • Use a spoon to scoop the flour into the measuring cup rather than scooping the flour out of the container or bag with your measuring cup. 
  • If you desire a sweet muffin, choose just ONE:
  • After combining the dry and wet ingredients, do NOT over-mix the muffin batter. Mix lightly with a spatula until just combined
Storage: keep on the counter for up to 2 days, refrigerate for up to 4 days, or freeze for up to 3 months.
