OMG Apple (Zucchini) Muffins for Breakfast or Desert


Ingredients

    For the Brown Butter Apple:
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 large zucchini diced (1-1/2 cups)
  • 3/4 teaspoon apple pie spice*
  • salt
  • 1-3 tablespoons golden erythritol or zylitol, to taste (I used 3 tablespoons)
  • 1-3 tablespoons lemon juice to taste (I used 3 tablespoons)
  • For the Apple Muffins:
  • 2/3 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup golden flaxseed meal
  • 1 tablespoon psyllium husk powder
  • 1-1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon apple pie spice (see notes)
  • 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/3 cup sweetener (I use Swerve)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 4 tablespoons butter melted
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1 cup brown-butter apple

Directions

    For the Brown Butter Apple:
  1. Heat up the butter in a skillet or pan over medium/low heat. You want to use a skillet (or wide-base pan) as opposed to a saucepan so the juices get absorbed evenly by the zucchini. Continue to cook the butter for 2-4 minutes until brown in color.
  2. Add in the zucchini, spices, salt and mix everything together. Add in the lower amounts of sweetener and lemon juice, cover, lower heat to low, and let simmer for 5 minutes. Remove lid and taste for sweetness and acidity; you’ll most likely need to add more of both (don’t be afraid of the lemon juice, its acidity is what will give it that apple kick once it’s thoroughly absorbed).
  3. Cover once again and cook for 10 more minutes. Remove the lid, taste again, and allow to cook uncovered for 3-6 minutes longer to thicken up the juices. Allow to rest for 10 minutes and enjoy (or allow to cool and keep in the fridge for 3-4 days).
  4. For the Apple Muffins

  5. Preheat oven to 350degrees. Line or grease and flour a muffin pan, set aside.
  6. Add almond flour, flaxseed meal, psyllium husk powder, baking powder, apple pie spice, xanthan gum and salt to a medium bowl. Whisk until thoroughly combined, set aside.
  7. Add sweetener and eggs to a large bowl and beat with an electric mixer for 3-5 minutes until airy and lighter in color. With the mixer on, add in the vanilla extract, apple cider vinegar and butter.
  8. Add in the dry flour mixture in two parts, alternating with the water. Continue to mix for a couple minutes until fully incorporated and elastic, the batter will thicken as you mix. Fold in brown-butter zucchini.
  9. Scoop the batter into the prepared muffin pans, smoothing out the tops with wet fingertips.
  10. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until golden and a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Watch out after minute 15, and tent with aluminum foil as soon as they begin to brown (around 25 for me). The miffins will collapse a tad post bake as they’re weighed down by the zucchini, don’t sweat it.
  11. They can be stored at room temp for 3-4 days.

Note – 1 teaspoon apple pie spice = 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg, 1/4 tsp ginger and a dash of all-spice.

A Super Simple Breakfast


Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp plus 1 heaping tsp almond flour
  • 2 tsp coconut flour

  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon (add half to batter and use the other half on top)

  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 egg

Directions

  1. Crack egg into coffee mug. Mix in all ingredients EXCEPT for the butter
  2. When the batter is smooth and completely mixed, then add your tablespoon of butter right into the center. No need to mix it in or melt it first
  3. Microwave for 1 to 2 minutes, depending on your microwave strength. When it’s done it should still be soft and spongy.
  4. Carefully slice it in half and stick the two halves in the toaster (I pan fry mine since it holds together better that way)
  5. Top with more butter, cinnamon, sweetener or sugar free pancake syrup.
