Zucchini whole grain muffins

VEGAN, VEGETARIAN, NUT-FREE

One vegetable that is a summer blessing is zucchini. It is available in plentiful and can be used in many ways. Zucchini muffins are very easy to bake and goes well as a breakfast item or as a side to robust soups. 

I used whole wheat flour along with spelt flour to make a whole grain food. Cheese can be added optionally but I wanted to enjoy the wholesome goodness of zucchini without overpowering it with any other additions. They have a golden brown hue and are flaky outside with a soft moist interior, achieved purely by the goodness of zucchini. 

The spice adds a kick and the Italian seasoning a mild flavor without taking away the subtlety of zucchini.

These muffins are a simple 1-2-3 process and take just 10 minutes to assemble and bake, including shredding the zucchini. 

Enjoy these muffins as an ‘any-time’ snack during the summer. Kid-approved as well!
