Description

A moist muffin with a burst of cinnamon flavor.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Shredded, Unpeeled Zucchini
  • 2 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • ½ teaspoons Baking Soda
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • ⅛ teaspoons Ground Ginger
  • 1 pinch Ground Cloves
  • 1 pinch Ground Nutmeg
  • 1-¼ teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
  • ½ cups Plain Greek Yogurt
  • ¼ cups Butter, Melted
  • 2 whole Large Eggs
  • ½ cups Granulated Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon Extract
  • 1 cup Cinnamon Baking Chips
  • Raw Sugar For Sprinkiing Over Top Of Muffins

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 350 F. Lightly grease 12 regular size OR 6 jumbo muffin cups with nonstick cooking spray.

Place the shredded zucchini in a mesh strainer to drain. Set aside.

Whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, ginger, cloves, nutmeg and cinnamon in a small bowl. Set the mixture aside.

Combine the yogurt, melted butter, eggs, sugar, vanilla and cinnamon extract in a large bowl. Whisk until well blended.

Squeeze any excess moisture from zucchini, then stir it into the egg mixture.

Add the flour mixture into the batter, then stir in the cinnamon chips, stirring just until combined.

Divide the batter evenly between the prepared muffin cups. Sprinkle raw sugar liberally over the top of each muffin.

Bake at 350 F for 20-25 minutes for regular size muffins, 30-35 minutes for jumbo muffins, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Cool muffins in the pan for 10 minutes. Run a knife around the edges and gently remove the muffins from the pan to a wire rack and cool completely. Makes 12 regular or 6 jumbo muffins.

These are every bit as delicious as you’re hoping they’ll be! I couldn’t find cinnamon extract at the store, so I just went a little heavy on the regular cinnamon to make up for it. I will definitely be making these again!
