Paleo Vegeo Chocolate Muffins Nom

Paleo Vegeo Chocolate Muffins

Yesterday my daughter started talking about how she wished she had a zucchini muffin. She loves chocolate zucchini muffins. Then I saw these: 

Paleo Zucchini Brownies via The Unrefined Kitchen and made my changes to the recipe to share it with you. 

4 pastured eggs (could use egg substiute) 
1 1/2 cup grated organic zucchini
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce (or mashed banana)
1/3 cup raw honey or raw agave (for vegan)
1/2 tsp. pure Madagascar vanilla
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. Himilayan salt
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa or raw cacao
1/2 cup sifted coconut flour

What about Chocolate is paleo? 

There is controversy in the paleo caveman commeth community about whether "cocoa", not chocolate, is allowed. When you buy processed chocolate it always has sugar & other additives in it {including dairy}. Now if it's super healthy raw cacao (from the real cacao plant) I do not have a problem with it. I like to make my daughter hot chocolate with hemp milk, raw agave and cocao or unsweetened cocoa. This is rich in minerals like manganese, iron, copper and magnesium. So keep aware of sugar and dairy, but don't feel bad about this little antioxidant treat.
