Zucchini Muffins

Makes 20


1 1/2 cups 375 mL white flour
1 1/2 cups 375 mL whole wheat flour
1 cup 250 mL chopped pecans or almonds
2 tsp 10 mL baking powder
1 tsp 5 mL baking soda
1 tsp 5 mL cinnamon
1/2 tsp 2 mL salt
2 cups 500 mL fresh zucchini
1/2 cup 125 mL buttermilk or equivalent
1/2 cup 125 mL vegetable oil
4 4 eggs
1 cup 250 ml white sugar


  1. Grate the zucchini using a cheese grater. Start by cutting off the bump on the end without the stem. Then grate it until only the stem remains. One zucchini is normally between 1 and 6 cups, depending on size.
  2. Blend the wet ingredients together wit a hand blender.
  3. Separately, mix the dry ingredients.
  4. Add the "dry" mixture to "wet" mixture and stir them thoroughly. You can blend them with the hand blender, but that will grid up the pecans.
  5. Spoon the batter into muffin cups. Fill them mostly full; they will rise but not a lot.
  6. Bake at 375F (190C) for 20 minutes.
  7. When they are done, dump them out onto cookie racks to cool. If you leave them in the muffin cups, they may get a bit soggy.
