  2. In a small bowl, add flax and water. Stir and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, mash bananas with a fork. Add grated zucchini, almond milk, vanilla extract, almond butter, maple syrup, and flax mixture. Stir until combine.
  4. Add oats, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and add-in's of your choice (see below). Stir until combined.

  7. Once cooled, serve or store in an air-tight container in refrigerator or freezer.

Tips:

  • Don't squeeze water out of zucchini.
  • You will have extra batter if you only use one muffin tin - make an oatmeal bake!
  • Want less sugar? leave out the maple syrup & add extra ripe bananas for natural sweetness!
