Zucchini, Banana, and Flaxseed Muffins
Yields: 12 muffins
 
Ingredients
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • ½ cup ground flaxseed (flaxseed meal)
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1½ cups coarsely grated zucchini (I used 1½ zucchinis)
  • 1 mashed ripe banana (approx ⅓ cup)
  • ¾ cup buttermilk
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • nonstick cooking spray
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly coat 12 standard muffin cups with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flours, flaxseed, brown sugar, baking soda, baking powder and cinnamon.
  3. In a small bowl, stir zucchini and mashed banana together. Add to flour mixture and stir to combine.
  4. In medium bowl, whisk together milk, egg and vanilla. Add milk mixture to flour mixture and stir gently until combined (do not overmix).
  5. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes in pan and then transfer to wire rack to cool completely (about 30 minutes).
