Sneaky Apple Muffins

You don't *have* to be sneaky about these muffins, if you don't want.  You *could* just tell everyone that they're whole wheat and that there's zucchini in them...or just keep that tidbit to yourself.  If you use green apples, the visible zucchini peel will totally pass for apple.  You *could* even flat-out lie and make this with all zucchini and still tell 'em it's apple ::shhh::

I used thawed frozen shredded zucchini from my garden bonanza.  If you grate up a fresh zucch for this, be sure to press as much moisture out as you can.  The zucchini will be a little "toothier" in the muffins if it's fresh, too.  You'll need a small apple and half a small zucchini for the amounts called for.

Whole Wheat Apple-Zucchini Muffins
Makes 12

1 cup all purpose flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/3 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp apple pie spice
pinch salt
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 egg
3/4 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup grated apple
1/2 cup shredded zucchini, all moisture pressed out

Stir dry ingredients together.  Whisk wet ingredients together.  Mix gently until no dry lumps remain.  Stir in apple and zucchini.  Pour into 12 muffin cups and bake 20 minutes at 400F. Pin It
