Whole Wheat Zucchini Muffins
Jessica Casbere Sabo - Tacoma, WA
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 cup sugar
1 cup finely shredded unpeeled zucchini
1/4 cup cooking oil
1/4 teaspoon finely shredded lemon peel
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a mixing bowl combine flour, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, baking powder, and nutmeg.
In another mixing bowl combine sugar, shredded zucchini, cooking oil, egg, and lemon peel;
mix well. Add flour mixture; stir just till combined.
Pour batter into muffin cups to fill 1/2 way to top, sprinkle with a cinnamon/sugar topping for added sweetness. Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 25 min. or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Cool for 5-10 minutes and enjoy.
Some other ideas to mix it up a bit....
Apple muffins - prepare as above except substitute shredded peeled apple for the zucchini.
Carrot muffins - prepare as above except substitute shredded carrot for the zucchini.
I also think you can substitute banana in to make cinnamon banana muffins too....
