Zucchini Muffins

Over the weekend, I bought reduced produce at the grocery store. Ever seen it? It’s usually all on a cart, wrapped in plastic tucked in the corner of the produce section. I’m not really a “coupon clipper” kinda gal, but after spending only .73 cents on three huge zucchini, I’m definitely going to start shopping in the sale section. Let’s be clear, I am not condoning avoiding the sale section in other stores. If something is not below $50 at the mall, I won’t buy it…most of the time.

Anyways, I’ve been stuffing myself with zucchini more than usual because it’s seasonal oh and because the three I have are fresh and about to go bad. This my friends, is the down side of reduced produce. You get a lot for a little but you have to shove your pie hole with said produce until it’s gone.

Unless you bake it into a muffin!

My mind tried to come up with other creative ways to use up my zucchini. Casserole? Nah. Frittata? Too fancy. Muffins? I always like muffins. And sweet things! We’ve been over this.

The thing I like best about these is they include a whole lot of one of my favorite things as of yet:

 

Everyone and their brother is in love with this stuff, and I can see why. It’s insane. It’s also $10.99. Why wouldn’t I check the price before I bought it?

When I first bought it, I tried to savor it and enjoy it in small amounts. Well, that went out the window quickly since almost half the jar went into these muffins.

It was worth it.

Zucchini Muffins

  • 1 c. whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 t baking powder
  • 2 egg yolks + 1 egg white
  • 1/2 c. nut butter (I used Justin’s Vanilla Almond Butter)
  • 1/4 c. honey
  • 1 medium zucchini, grated
  • 1 t pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 t cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350F. Combined ingredients together in a bowl. Scoop into lined cupcake tins or a two mini loaf pans. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until center comes out clean.

Oh yea, and these are even better drizzled with honey. Do it.

    These look great. I just found a full bag of whole wheat flour in the back of my cabinet. Maybe there are muffins in my future.
