Italian Zucchini Turkey Burgers (and a bonus recipe for your sweet tooth)

Happy Monday!
Today I want to share one of my favorite recipes with you.
 Italian Zucchini Turkey Burgers!

This recipe is simple, healthy and super delicious!

zucchini burgers

What your cute self will need:

2 lb extra lean ground turkey breast
4 medium zucchini
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp onion powder
2 tsp dried basil
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp black pepper

Set broiler to high- I do 500 degrees.
Arrange rack to be around 2 inches from burners.
In a large bowl, combine the grated zucchini and spices.
Then add ground turkey and mix well.
Create 8 burgers and broil 7 minutes on one side, flip and then cook 7 minutes on other side.
Make sure to spray the baking sheet well with coconut oil to prevent sticking.

These are super moist so be careful when you flip midway through.... it's tricky to keep them together.

I am obsessed with this recipe and make a double batch every Sunday.
I like to make them into meatballs as well for a quick, yummy, mid-day snack.

Nutrition Info-
Each of the 8 burgers have 144 calories, 1 g fat, 3.5 carbs and 27 grams protein.

Also, several of you were requesting my Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Muffins.
These are great little treats for my girls and simple to whip up.
I make a batch of these on the weekends as well.

What you'll need.....

1 3/4 cup gluten free all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 T organic cocoa powder
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup semisweet mini chocolate chips and another 1/4 cup for sprinkling on top before baking
1 cup almond milk
1/3 cup melted coconut oil
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract

I mix all dry ingredients together in a big bowl.
Then throw the milk, coconut oil, egg and vanilla into a container, put a lid on it and shake really well.
I dump this into the dry ingredients and mix.  Not too much.  Just until blended.

Then pour into silicone baking cups that have been sprayed with coconut oil spray.
Bake at 400 degrees for around 15-20 minutes.

Makes 12 big muffins or I usually do 15 medium size for the girls.

Please let me know if you make either of these recipes!
