Ok, so I'm obsessed! I think I've reposted this at least once before, but I keep going back to it, adapting the recipe to fit what I have in my fridge. I'm not exactly a fan of hiding greens to get kids to eat veggies, but I am a fan of including veggies in almost everything I eat! The squash makes these moist and delicious. This recipe was originally created by Mallory Froman, and I just keep adapting it to use what I have. Thanks for a great base recipe, Mallory! I adapted this to make about one and half dozen muffins because I like to just use the whole can of coconut milk, and I have a six-tin muffin tin.
Gluten Free Chocolate Kale Squash Muffins Ingredients:
3 C. Oat Flour (make your own by blending GF oats in a food processor)
1/2 C. Cocoa Powder
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1/2 tsp. Salt
1 C. Coconut Milk (canned/full fat)
2 C. Fresh Kale (one full bunch)
2 C. seeded summer squash or zucchini (two medium squash)
2 tsp. Vanilla
1/2 C. Maple Syrup (or more to taste)
1/2 C. Melted Coconut Oil
Blend oats in a food processor, then transfer to a bowl. Add cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
In the food processor pulse kale until small. Blend bananas, kale, and coconut milk until very smooth. Pour into a bowl.
Switch to shredder attachment of the food processor. Seed summer squash or zucchini by slicing into long quarters, then cutting out the middle triangle that holds the seeds. Shred seeded summer squash in processor. Switch back to bad attachment, and blend shredded squash with kale mixture. (you could also do this with a blender). Transfer to a bowl.
Add remaining wet ingredients and stir well (vanilla, eggs, maple, melted coconut oil).
Add all the dry ingredients and mix well (oat flour, cocoa powder, soda, and salt).
Grease muffin tins. Scoop batter into muffin tins filling 3/4 of the way up.
Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes or cooked through (they’ll start to crack and little on the top).
