Although zucchini tends to add a lot of water to recipes – which can lead to soggy muffins – it doesn’t take long to squeeze out all that extra water, making perfect healthy vegetable muffins.

The fresh zucchini balances out the creamed corn, so these aren’t too sweet, but they will go great with a barbecue or chili.

We use whole wheat flour to make our healthy vegetable muffins, but it could be easily replaced with your favorite gluten-free flour blend.

Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

  2. Place grated zucchini in a colander over a bowl, and sprinkle with 1/2 tsp salt.  Let sit for ten minutes, then squeeze water out of the zucchini.

  3. While zucchini sits, grease muffin pan or line with cupcake liners.

  4. Sift flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, and remaining 1/2 tsp of salt into a bowl.  

  5. Mix wet ingredients - including vegetables - in another bowl.  (Be careful to only use 300 g of corn.  Most cans are larger than 300 g; I used a kitchen scale to measure out the correct amount, or just use 3/4 of the can.)

  6. Combine the two mixes and stir together, being careful not to overmix.

  7. Spoon mixture into muffin pan.

  8. Bake 15-20 minutes until golden.
