If you’ve got an abundance of zucchini from your garden or are just looking for an easy, healthy breakfast, this is a great recipe to try.



  • 2 cups shredded zucchini
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour (white whole wheat is good too)
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (I generally use all white whole wheat)
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 TSP baking soda
  • 1 whole egg
  • 2 egg whites (or Best of the Egg, Egg Beaters)
  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 cup nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 1 TSP vanilla
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries (Craisins), or other favorite dried fruit.



  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. Mix egg, egg whites, sugar, applesauce, yogurt, vanilla & zucchini and set aside
  3. Slowly add flours till everything is incorporated
  4. Scoop batter into muffin tin (with papers or sprayed). I use a 1/4 cup measuring spoon to fill
  5. Bake for about 15 minutes till a toothpick comes out clean
  6. Cool and serve
  7. Store in airtight bag or container. These freeze well.
