Healthy Zucchini Oat Muffins

Written by COA Nutrition Team On August 21, 2020

Healthy Zucchini Oat Muffins are made with two whole grains, freshly-grated zucchini, and not-too-much sweetener. Make them ahead for easy, healthy weekday morning breakfasts or lunchbox treats.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 ½ cup flour, whole wheat
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ cup maple syrup, pure
  • 1/3 cup almond milk, unsweetened
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cup zucchini
  • ½ cup oats, dry

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and grease a 12-cup muffin tin well.
  2. Peel and grate zucchini.
  3. In a large bowl add the flour, baking powder and soda, cinnamon, and salt. Use a whisk to combine well.
  4. Make a well in the center of the dry mixture and add the egg, syrup or honey, milk, coconut oil, and vanilla. Stir until the mixture just comes together (don’t over mix). Add the zucchini and oats and stir to combine.
  5. Divide the mixture evenly between the 12 muffin cups. Sprinkle a few additional oats on each muffin if desired. Bake for 16-20 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove from the oven and let the muffins cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Remove from the muffin pan and serve warm, at room temperature.

Planning Ahead Tip of the Month

Build time-saving habits

There are plenty of little habits you can build while cooking that will make you more efficient. For example, rinse prep dishes as you go to make washing them easier or move them into the dishwasher as you’re working. You can also create a scrap bag or bowl where you discard skins, odd bits, or anything else you might throw away while cooking – this way you don’t have to lose your flow walking over to the trash can. A huge time-saver: prep bowls. Measure out your ingredients beforehand and set them out in prep bowls. That way, once it’s time to use them, you can just grab the bowl and pour.
