Here is a recipe for my Apple Zucchini Maple Muffins. Take a couple to go as an easy breakfast that packs in fruit, veggies, and whole grains! Each muffin is about 75kcal. They also smell wonderful as they are baking! Enjoy!
- 1 cup whole-wheat flour
- 1 small apple (about 2-3 in in diameter), chopped
- 1 cup shredded zucchini
- 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1/2 cup light vanilla soy milk
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 2 egg whites
- 1 Tbsp. light maple syrup
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 Tbsp. ground flax seed
- 1 tsp vanilla
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. If you have a problem with seeing bits of zucchini, just make sure to grate your zucchini extra fine. If you are making these for children, it is a great way to hide some veggies!
Distribute batter evenly amongst your muffin tin; make sure to grease before adding your batter! Bake for about 25 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Add an extra sprinkle of cinnamon on top and enjoy! Nuts such as pecans or walnuts would also be a great addition!
