Sherri's 100% Whole Wheat Maple Zucchini Muffins

After a few tries I finally have this recipe down and ready to share!

3 eggs
1/3 cup applesauce (I use unsweetened)
Zest and juice of one lemon
1 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
3 cups well packed shredded zucchini
3 cups whole wheat flour
dash of salt
cinnamon and nutmeg to taste (I use fresh grated)
pinch of baking soda
pinch of baking powder

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

In a large bowl, beat eggs, applesauce, lemon zest, lemon juice, and syrup together. In a separate bowl combine the flour, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, and baking powder. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet and fold in the zucchini.

Fill greased or lined muffin tins (makes 2 dozen regular sized muffins - can also make mini muffins) Bake 30 minutes, or until tester comes out clean.

Yummy and healthy!!
