Paleo Zucchini Almond Butter Muffins

Posted on

I love a good muffin, so when I thought about what I would eat for breakfast and snack on during my upcoming travels, this tasty treat immediately popped into my head. But, I didn’t want to make any old muffin. (You know the ones that leave you hungry just a couple of hours later, right?) I wanted to make a muffin with some serious staying power, so I incorporated some of my favorite protein- and (healthy) fat-packed ingredients into this recipe. And, after a quick tally, each of these muffins packs nearly 8g of protein, which is pretty good for a baked good!

These muffins are dense, but moist at the same time. You can tell you’re eating a hearty, satisfying, and nutritious muffin, but there’s a hint of “dessertiness” in each bite too. I can’t wait to¬†pack these babies¬†for my upcoming trips!
