Zucchini Muffins Kind of Day

I watched a movie on the Hallmark channel last night – where the perfect single mother bakes zucchini muffins for a road trip to drive her perfect daughter from Los Angeles to Oregon, where she would be attending college. Cute movie, great chemistry among the characters Amy and Noah, and perhaps it is one of the only films from Hallmark where there is actual sexual tension portrayed between the characters. So, besides the chemistry, all I could focus on was the zucchini muffins. Funny how things work on the ‘interweb’, because all of a sudden this recipe popped up across my screen and naturally, since it’s all gluten-free, I decide to bake them over the weekend and…share with all of you right here:

INGREDIENTS

1 cup grated zucchini (about 1 medium/large)
2 eggs
1/3 cup olive oil (or avocado oil or coconut oil)
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup buttermilk or plain yogurt
3/4 cup almond flour
3/4 cup all-purpose flour (or superfine rice flour)
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. sea salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 cup cane sugar
1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chunks
turbinado sugar, to finish, optional  {more}

Just in case you are a diehard Hallmark movies fan like myself – here’s the film I do very much recommend:
