I’m all about making muffins! All kinds and flavors, you name it, we probably have tried it. Some of our favorites are:
What’s crazy is that I never thought about making a Zucchini Muffin recipe before. We make all kinds of treats with Zucchini, but this hasn’t been one of them until now!
It looks like our love of muffins is carrying on to our little guy and I’m always looking for ways to put more fruits and veggies into his foods so when I was trying to think of a great way to add zucchini into this favorite food of his, this is what I came up with. I hope you enjoy, these are so good!
Zucchini Muffin Recipe
What You Need:
- 1 1/2 c. flour
- 1 1/2 teas. baking powder
- 1 teas. baking soda
- 1/4 teas. salt
- 3/4 c. sugar
- 1 c. shredded zucchini
- 1/4 c. oil
- 1/2 c. applesauce
Mix the dry ingredients together and then add in the wet ingredients. Stir well until everything is incorporated and you don’t have any stray lumps.
Bake at 350 F for about 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. You might have to bake them a little longer, mine stayed a bit doughy in the middle because of the applesauce so I ended up sticking them back in for a bit.
Make sure to add less sugar is your applesauce is sweetened. I do add a little sugar to my homemade applesauce so I only added 1/2 of sugar to these, I could have used less.
Since these have fruit and veggies in them they make a great breakfast when warmed up a bit and slathered with some great butter. Otherwise they also make a nice grab and go snack! You can also freeze these for later. I didn’t think we’d eat up the whole batch fast enough so I froze half of the zucchini muffin recipe (after I baked them) and they came out of the freezer great!
