Paleo Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Zucchini Muffins

Last Sunday morning at 6:30 am, Eliana already had two eggs (and pizza) and she said she was still hungry.  Elana’s Pantry to the rescue.  As I’ve mentioned in a previous post, she and her site are my go-to.

I tried this mini muffin recipe for the first time — and it was ridiculously easy and super delicious.  Eliana ate 4 and then said, “I would like 5 more please.” If this puts nutrient-dense zucchini, eggs and coconut in her belly…..  DONE.



The best part is that it’s crazy easy to make! These are the ingredients and the one-two steps.
