Zucchini Spelt Muffins

This recipe originally came from Blendtec.  I modified it a bit and make it in my Vitamix. 

1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
3 large eggs
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1 medium zucchini, quartered lengthwise
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1 1/2 cup wholegrain spelt flour (I get this in the bulk bins at Fred Meyer)
2/3 cup oat bran (I get this in the bulk bins at Fred Meyer)

Options:
1/2 cup raisins
chocolate chips
dates and walnuts

Add first 6 ingredients to blender in order listed and secure lid.  Pulse 10-12 times.  (note: zucchini will not be completely grated -this will occur when dry ingredients are incorporated.)  Add remaining ingredients to blender and secure lid.  Pulse 3-5 times until dry ingredients are barely incorporated; don't overblend.  Stir in option of your choice.  We like chocolate chips, obviously!  Allow batter to rest 5-10 min.  Pour batter into prepared muffin tins (3/4 way full).  Bake at 375 for 16-20 min. or until toothpick comes out clean.

Makes between 12-18 muffins depending on size of zucchini.
