1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
3 free range organic eggs (or 2 duck eggs)

DIRECTIONS:

Muffins
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a muffin pan, or use muffin liners (works best).
Shred the zucchini and press between paper towels until excess moisture is removed.
Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl.
Beat the eggs, then add the honey and banana and beat on medium for about 1 minute, until frothy.
Add the zucchini and mix until combined.
With mixer running, slowly add dry ingredients.  Mix until combined.
Spoon batter into prepared pan.
For regular muffins, bake for 30-35 minutes and for mini muffins, bake for 20-25 minutes or until browned on top, middle is set, and toothpick comes out clean.

Vanilla Frosting
Scoop off the 1/2 cup of coconut solids that have risen to the top of the can.
Beat the coconut solids and palm shortening until thick.
Add the rest of the ingredients and mix until completely combined. Refrigerate for at least a half hour and then re-mix to make fluffy.
