1 raw carrot, grated

1 raw zucchini, grated

1 cup almond flour

1/4 cup brown rice flour

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

2 teaspoons powdered cinnamon

1/3 cup coconut oil

1/3 cup organic maple syrup (watch out for nasty HFCS in the non organic makes)

1  egg

1 vanilla pod or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

 

Method

Preheat oven to 180

Step 1. Measure and mix together the rice flour, almond flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.

Step 2. In another bowl combine the egg, maple syrup, softened coconut oil and vanilla extract and mix until smooth.

Step 3. Fold in the mix of dry ingredients and stir until well combined. Then add the grated carrot and zucchini.

Step 4. Pour the mixture into muffin cups or a muffin baking tray and cook for approximately 15 minutes or until cooked through.
