Zucchini Muffins!

I saw this recipe on a blog a while ago and have been wanting to make them for my mommy. They just look so light and healthy! I added some chopped walnuts for some extra crunch and they came out just perfect!

Ingredients: (6 muffins)

1½ c grated fresh zucchini (I used a small food processor)
1/3 c melted unsalted butter
½ c sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
Pinch salt
1½ c all-purpose flour
½ c walnuts

Preparations:

*You don't need a mixer for this recipe.

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). In a large bowl, mix together the sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Mix in the grated zucchini and then the melted butter. Sprinkle baking soda and salt over the mixture and mix in. In a separate bowl, stir together the flour, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Add these dry ingredients to the zucchini mixture. Fold in the walnuts.

2. Distribute the muffin dough equally among lined muffin cups, filling the cups up completely.

3. Bake on the middle rack until muffins are golden brown, and the top of the muffins bounce back when you press on them, about 25 to 30 minutes. Set on wire rack to cool for 5 minutes. Remove muffins from the tin let cool another 20 minutes.

I love how you incorporate so many fruits and veggies into your baked goods! I made black bean brownies once (it's posted somewhere on my blog..) and they were the fudgiest and most filling brownies I've had!
