Savory Zucchini Muffins


I made these muffins with the leftover zucchini pulp from the basil and ricotta stuffed zucchini recipe. They turned out fluffy, moist and packed with yumminess. Another awesome recipe to make zucchini into something delicious :-)













Trans-fat Free, Low Sodium


1 ½ cups zucchini
1 cup all-purpose flour
11 tablespoons whole-wheat flour
¾ cup cheddar cheese
low-fat, shredded
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
¼ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon black pepper
teaspoon salt
½ cup yogurt
plain, low-fat
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon fine herbs


Preheat oven to 350℉ (180℃).

In center of kitchen towel arrange zucchini; gather corners of towel to enclose zucchini and squeeze to remove excess liquid.

Combine zucchini, flours, cheese, baking powder, soda, pepper and salt; set aside.

Combine and whisk together yogurt, eggs, oil and fine herbs..

Add yogurt mixture to flour mixture and stir until blended.

Spray 12 2½ inch muffin pan cups with cooking spray.

Fill each about ⅔ full.

Bake in center rack for 20 minutes, or toothpick comes out dry.

Set pan on wire rack and cool slightly.

Invert muffins of wire rack and let cool.

2 T of sugar are in the ingredients, but not listed in the directions. I presume it goes in with the flour et. al. ingredients.
