Zucchini Oat Muffins (No Oil, No Refined Sugar)

One of my sweet kiddos experiences tummy troubles (constipation) which has caused me to become more creative in my meal prep. For those out there who may be looking for healthy muffins (that can also help little kids with constipation), this is for you! As a disclaimer, I like baking but I am not a “baker.” 🙂

Ingredients

  • 1 and 2/3 C flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 C honey
  • 1/2 C milk
  • 1/2 C applesauce
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 grated zucchini
  • 1/2 C oats
  • Optional: 3 tbsp of flax seeds (Note: Flax seeds help with constipation but change the flavor of the muffins significantly)

Steps

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • In a large mixing bowl, mix together flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.
  • Add all remaining ingredients to the mixing bowl and stir until just combined (it will be lumpy).
  • Bake for 15-17 minutes.
  • This recipe yields 12 muffins.
