If this recipe seems like a mish-mash of ingredients- it is. I've been trying to get better with our groceries- using up everything we have before we buy more. I've listed what I used in the recipe but also what you can use if you don't have it on hand. Get creative!
Banana Zucchini Muffins
makes 24 mini muffins
1/2 c Zucchini grated (I left the skin on since mine was organic but if you don't want your kids to see any green you can peel it first)
1 Banana - the browner the better!
1/4 c Sugar (Can use white, brown, honey or even applesauce)
3/4 tsp Baking Powder
3/4 tsp Baking Soda
3/4 c Whole Wheat Flour
1 packet of instant oatmeal (I used cinnamon spice flavor) - or you can use plain quick-cooking oats
1/4 tsp Salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix your wet and dry ingredients separately then combine them. I let the older kid do the wet and the toddler do the dry. :) Don't over-mix when you put it all together. We used small teaspoons to fill up our mini muffin tray. I didn't set a time for baking but I would guess somewhere around 10 mins. Keep your eye on them!
My kids loved making and eating these. They are the perfect finger food for babies or snack for toddlers. I plan to throw some in my daughter's lunchbox as well!
