Ingredients

2  
packets of Quaker Super Grains oatmeal (apples & cinnamon flavor)
1⁄2 teaspoon
Cinnamon
1 cup
organic flour (I used Bob's Red Mill organic all-purpose flour)
2 teaspoons
Baking Powder
1⁄2 teaspoon
Iodized Sea Salt
1 cup
grated zucchini
1⁄4 cup
applesauce
1⁄2 cup
avocado oil (or sub coconut oil or olive oil)
2  
Eggs (I used O Organics' eggs)
1⁄2 cup
Coconut Sugar (or sub regular sugar)
1⁄2 cup
unsweetened cashewmilk (or sub your favorite milk)
1⁄4 cup
honey roasted pecans (coarsely chopped)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients: oatmeal, cinnamon, flour, baking powder, and sea salt. 
  3. Grate a medium zucchini, then squeeze out the excess juices --- do this by putting the grated zucchini in a cotton tea towel and squeezing until no more juice comes out. Then put the zucchini into the dry ingredients.
  4. In a small bowl, combine the wet ingredients: apple sauce, avocado oil, eggs, coconut sugar, and cashewmilk. Stir until thoroughly combined. 
  5. Then, stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Stir just until mixed. 
  6. Use cupcake liners and then spray the muffin tin and liners with non-stick spray. Fill each cup 3/4 of the way up to the top. 
  7. Sprinkle the tops with the coarsely chopped honey roasted pecans. Gently press them down into the batter slightly.
  8. Bake for 25 minutes or until lightly browned. 
  9. Enjoy!
