Zucchini Spice Muffins

Zucchini Spice Muffin
Yields: 6 | Use: Cuisinart Smart Stick Powertrio hand blender


1/2 cup toasted, cooked walnuts 

1 pc. medium zucchini, trimmed and cut to fit the feed tube of the 

work bowl 

1/2 cup light or dark brown sugar 

1 pc. large egg, lightly beaten 

3/4 cup unbleached all-purpose flour 

1/4 tsp. baking soda 

1/4 tsp. baking powder 

1 tsp. ground cinnamon 

1/4 tsp. ground cloves 

1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg 

1/4 tsp. ground ginger

Non-stick cooking spray

2. Insert the chopping blade into the work bowl. Add the toasted nuts and pulse until chopped. Remove and set aside.

4. Add the brown sugar and egg to the shredded zucchini, mix to fully combine. Add the remaining ingredients and mix to combine. Spoon evenly into prepared muffin cups.

5. Bake in the preheated oven for about 25 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted comes out clean.
