  • 1½ cups rolled oats (see Tip)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 medium zucchini, shredded (about 1½ cups)
  • 2 large eggs
  • ⅓ cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup mini chocolate chips (optional)

Preparation

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a 24-cup mini muffin tin with cooking spray.
  2. Pulse oats in a blender until finely ground. Add baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda and salt; pulse once or twice to blend. Add zucchini, eggs, brown sugar, oil and vanilla; puree until smooth. (The batter will be wet.) Stir in chocolate chips, if using. Fill the prepared muffin cups.
  3. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 15 to 17 minutes. Cool in the pan on a wire rack for 5 minutes, then turn out to cool completely.
  • Tip: People with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity should use oats that are labeled "gluten-free," as oats are often cross-contaminated with wheat and barley.

Love them, very moist...however, I replaced the canola oil for coconut oil and the sugar for Stevia because I cannot eat sugar. I didn’t use chocolate chips but added a couple of tablespoons of pepitas...Delicious
