Carrot Zucchini Muffins

I've been doing a mostly Paleo diet.... I've tried to cut out artificial sweeteners, sugars, dairy, and processed stuff.... Oh and grain too. So here's a yummy little recipe. :)  You'll see I'm still using whey protein - like I said 'mostly' Paleo.
1/2 cup coconut flour
2 scoops vanilla protein powder (I use Body Fortress)
2 eggs, whisked.
1/2 cup grated carrots (Peeled)
1 large zucchini - grated (w/peel)
2tbsp agave nectar
dash stevia
1/4 cup coconut oil (melted)
1.5-2tsp cinnamon
1tsp vanilla
1tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt substitute
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk
1/4 cup no sugar added/unsweetened applesauce
Preheat oven to 350.
Line muffin tin w/cupcake papers.
In bowl, combine dry ingredients. Mix well.
In another bowl, combine wet ingredients.  Whisk together.
Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix well.
Add Zucchini & Carrots to 'batter'.
Fill muffin cups 1/2-3/4 full.
Bake 25 minutes.
Makes 15 muffins.

**I'm totally thinking of making these for Thanksgiving or Christmas, and icing them with a skinny cream cheese frosting for a yummy dessert!**
