Zucchini Muffins Recipe


essential oils


Adapted from Better Homes and Gardens cookbook.

First add wet ingredients:

1 beaten egg

1 cup finely shredded zucchini

1/4 cup olive oil

1 cup organic sugar

Mix together on low until ingredients come together.

Then add dry ingredients:

1 1/2 cups organic flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon Himalayan or sea salt

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon cloves

Mix together until ingredients come together.  Then run mixer on medium speed for an additional minute.

Divide into greased muffin pans.  We actually use cupcake liners if we have them on hand because this makes a plain muffin way more fun and exciting to our kids.  Oh,  okay…. and to me,  too!

Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.  Cool 10 minutes,  then place on a wire rack until completely cooled.

These muffins are great to add to your freezer stash.  We typically do a double batch so we can freeze one batch and use the other.


Did you know that you can freeze raw zucchini?  In the summer when our garden was overflowing,  we actually pre-shredded a huge amount.  You do not need to drain,  it will look watery,  but you want that moisture going into the recipe so the end result is the right consistency.  We divided the shredded zucchini into 2 cup portions for our double batch method and froze in freezer baggies.  This way we always have the right amount of zucchini on hand for our zucchini muffins!

About Betsy Dirks

I strongly believe that you can fix anything with doTERRA essential oils and a fresh pot of coffee. I am a doTERRA representative local to Pennsylvania, Delaware, & Maryland.When I discovered essential oils three years ago, it was amazing to me how quickly and effectively I could experience the benefits of aromatherapy. The very first oil I used was lavender. I had been going through a difficult and stressful time in my life. As I began to use the lavender essential oil, I found it to be incredibly calming, quieting, and provide a much-needed sense of relaxation. At the same time, I remembered a vow I made as a kid to share whatever ended up making a difference for me with my various wellness challenges. And so my love of sharing essential oils was born!Not local, buy from my online doTERRA store and attend online essential oil classes through Facebook!
