Banana Zucchini Muffin
HOW TO MAKE BANANA ZUCCHINI MUFFINS:
STEP 1: Wet Ingredients
Simple blend 1 cup of chopped zucchini with 2 eggs, banana, apple sauce and vanilla extract. The zucchini holds tons of water naturally so you will not need to add extra water or oil in this recipe making them low fat!
*Note: The riper the banana the sweeter it will be. Try to use a banana that is almost black in color or a rich brown tone. You can speed up the process by placing a banana on a baking pan with the peel on at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes. It will start to become fragrant when it is getting close to ready.
STEP 2: Dry Ingredients
Mix together all of the dry ingredients in a bowl then add the wet ingredients and mix well!
STEP 3: Bake Into Muffins or a Bread Loaf
Bake the muffins until a toothpick inserted comes out clean in the center one. This will be about 18-22 minutes, depending on the oven as each oven is different. You can also turn this into healthy banana zucchini bread by pouring the batter into a prepared bread loaf pan and baking it for 50-55 minutes.
You can spread with butter or coconut oil and warm in the microwave for 10 seconds to re-heat. Once you make these banana zucchini muffins you will be making them all the time! They are rich in flavor, not overpowering with a banana aroma, sweet, heavenly, and flavorful!
