Zucchini Apple Cinnamon Muffins Recipe

Zucchini Apple Cinnamon Muffins Recipe-

It is official, Zucchini season is in full swing and our garden is producing zucchini at a ridiculous rate, giggle. I have been making a whole lot of zucchini recipes lately and I’ll be freezing some for the winter months as well. This Zucchini Apple Cinnamon Muffins Recipe is also a migraine safe recipe and it is perfect for people looking for low sugar and dairy free recipes too.  For those not needing migraine safe recipes please see *Katies Tid Bits below.

Before You Start– Preheat oven to 350˚ and place cupcake liners into muffin pan, spray lightly with nonstick cooking spray
Let’s Make It! In a medium mixing bowl combine flour, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, baking soda, baking powder and salt. In large mixing bowl, using an electric mixer, beat Splenda (sugar) eggs, milk and margarine (butter) together on medium speed. Add applesauce, cooking oil, maple syrup and continue beating for one minute. Add grated zucchini and apples a little bit at a time and beat on medium speed for one minute. Slowly add dry mixture and continue beating until smooth (about 3 minutes). Using an ice cream scoop or large spoon, fill muffin cups half full with batter. Place in oven on top rack for 20-30 minutes (until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean)
Makes 18-24 muffins depending on muffin cup size
Serving Suggestions Top with cinnamon sugar (2 parts sugar to one part cinnamon), serve with butter/margarine
**Katie’s Tid Bits– if you are not on a migraine safe diet add 1/4 Cup raisins and/or 1/4 Cup walnuts (chopped)
