Paleo Banana Zucchini Muffins

I know these muffins sound healthy and weird but they’re strangely addicting. The cashew butter and coconut flour really create these craveable muffins! They’re paleo and gluten free. Try finding coconut flour in your local co-op’s bulk bins (I got mine from the Wedge). I’m sure you can sub out the cashew butter, but you want a rich but neutral tasting nut butter. paleo muffinPaleo Banana Zucchini Muffins
