4 slices bacon
1 lb. zucchini
½ c. coconut milk
1 tbsp. honey
1 tsp onion flakes
2 tsp. apple cider vinegar
1 tsp. sea salt
¼ tsp. black pepper
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese
1 ½ c. almond flour
¼ c. coconut flour
1 tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. baking soda
Chosen Foods Avocado Oil Spray, for greasing
Preheat the oven to 350F. Lightly grease a 12-cup muffin pan with Chosen Foods Avocado Oil Spray.
Crisp the bacon and place it on a paper towel to drain the grease. Once cooled, crumble it into small pieces.
Shred the zucchini with a box grater or shredding attachment on a food processor. Place the zucchini in a large tea towel to soak up excess moisture.
Add the eggs, coconut milk, Chosen Oil Blend, honey, onion flakes, apple cider vinegar, sea salt, and black pepper to a large bowl. Whisk well until smooth. Stir in the cheddar cheese and the crumbled bacon (optionally reserve a small amount for topping over the muffins before baking). Wring the tea towel tight around the zucchini (over the sink) to remove any remaining moisture. Stir the zucchini shreds into the batter.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, and baking soda. Add it to the batter and stir until the batter is smooth and thickened.
Portion the batter evenly between the muffin cups, filling to about ⅔ full. Top with cheddar and bacon bits, as desired. Bake for 22-24 minutes, or until golden on top and a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean.
