Zucchini Muscle Girl Muffins

Zucchini Bread/Muffins sound like something that would be super healthy….
But often when you come across this in the real world it is typically loaded with sugar, flour, and bad fats.  This recipe will create snack sized  zucchini bites of glory perfect for packing in your lunch.  They are a snap to whip up and they taste great.  

Wet ingredients: 

1 Cup Egg whites 
1 shredded zucchini(medium)
1 tbsp flax oil

Dry Ingredients:

1 large apple, shredded
1/2 cup flax meal
1/2 cup whole wheatflour (I prefer Rice flour …I know Kaity would use coconut flour ;)
2 scoops vanilla wheyprotein powder
1.5 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking powder & 1/2 tsp baking soda

Place zucchini inseparate bowl; fold beaten egg mixture and flax oil into zucchini. Stir dryingredients; add to zucchini mixture. Mix well. Pour batter into greased 8 x4inch loaf pan, or 12 muffin cups. Bake at 325 degrees for approximately 45-50minutes (25 -30 if making as muffins) or until tester comes out clean. *Be surenot to overcook, or it will become hard and dry as stone.

These are nice with a dollop of Greek Vanilla Yogurt on top
