Active Time:

Total Time:
1 hr 15 mins


  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour

  • ¾ cup white whole-wheat flour

  • 2 teaspoons dried dill

  • 2 ¼ teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • ¾ teaspoon salt

  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten

  • ¾ cup reduced-fat milk

  • 5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 medium zucchini, shredded (about 1 1/2 cups)

  • ½ cup crumbled feta cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat a 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray.

  2. Whisk all-purpose flour, whole-wheat flour, dill, baking powder, garlic powder and salt in a large bowl. Whisk egg, milk and oil in a medium bowl.

  3. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Add zucchini and feta and stir until just blended. Do not overmix. Fill the prepared muffin cups about two-thirds full.

  4. Bake the muffins, rotating the pan from front to back halfway through, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes. Let the muffins cool in the pan for 5 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely, about 30 minutes more.

To make ahead:

Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
