Bikini Muffins


Peanut and I whipped up these muffins to while away a long, hot afternoon this week. She has dubbed them "Bikini Muffins" (I suppose 'zucchini' sounds like 'bikini' to a three year old, lol)


Peanut's Bikini Zucchini Muffins

(yields 24 muffins)

3 Eggs
1 c. Olive Oil
1 1/2 c. Granulated White Sugar
1 T. Vanilla
1 T. Cinnamon
1 1/2 t. Nutmeg
2 c. Shredded Zucchini, unpeeled
1 Medium Sized Apple, peeled and diced
2 c. unsifted all-purpose Flour
1 1/2 t. Baking Soda
1 1/4 t. Kosher Salt
1/4 t. Baking Powder
3/4 c. Unsalted. Shelled Sunflower Seeds
1/4 c. Flax Seeds

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Beat eggs and combine with oil and sugar. Add vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg. Mix in zucchini and apple dice. In a separate bowl, mix soda, salt and baking powder with flour. Add flour mixture to wet mix and stir until just blended (it will be very lumpy). Stir in seeds. Fill standard muffin cups 2/3 full and Bake for 18 to 20 minutes.
