Zucchini Muffins with Lemon and Rosemary

July 13, 2011 | Breads

It’s quite rare that I blog about a recipe here that isn’t largely my own. Sure, I read lots of blogs, cookbooks, and food magazines, but only for inspiration. I take an idea then run with it to make something uniquely my own. Not so today. I saw this recipe for Lemon Rosemary Zucchini Bread on Simply Recipes, and knew I had to make it. I made some changes to the recipe, and made muffins instead of a loaf. Yet still, I felt the recipe was close enough to the original that I should give credit where credit is due. Hope you like it as much as I do!

Zucchini Muffins with Lemon and Rosemary
 
Recipe type: Breads
Serves: 20
Ingredients
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh rosemary
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup (1 stick) melted butter
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons non fat Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • Zest of one lemon
  • 1 pound shredded zucchini (see note)
Instructions
  1. Prepare muffin pans by lining with paper liners and spraying the inside of the liners with cooking spray. Whisk together the flours, baking soda, baking powder, and rosemary. Beat the eggs until frothy then beat in the butter and oil and yogurt and sugar. Stir in the lemon zest and zucchini, then pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and stir until completely combined. Spoon into 20 muffin cups and bake for 15 minutes at 375 degrees.
Notes
I used zucchini that was previously shredded and frozen - when it thaws, it releases ALOT of it's excess water, meaning that it takes more than you think to come up with a pound after you've drained it. It was also fairly dry because of the moisture draining out which is why I added a little Greek yogurt to Elise's recipe. Finally, I had kids measuring the ingredients for me and can't be 100% sure what actually made it into the bowl, so if your results are not good with these measurements, PLEASE let me know!
