Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes


  • 1/2 cup white flour
  • 1/2 cup wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup vanilla protein powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1-2 eggs (if the batter is to think you can add the second egg)
  • 1/2 cup sugar (do 1/4 white and 1/4 brown)
  • 1 cup shredded zucchini
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray the muffin tin or place muffin cups into the muffin tin.

  2. Mix all the ingredients together in a mixer or with a bowl and hand mixer.

  3. Scoop about 1/4 or use a small cookie scoop and place into each muffin tin.

  4. Bake for 15 minutes or a toothpick comes out clean.

  5. The muffins will last a few days-week in a plastic bag or airtight container.

  6. You can also place in a plastic bag or airtight container and keep in the freezer for much longer. When you are ready to eat place a however many you want on a microwaveable plate. Heat for 10 seconds at a time until they are thawed and warmed throughout.

  7. The changes I made to make these more healthy: cut the sugar in half, use unsweetened applesauce instead of oil, replaced 1 cup of flour with 1/2 cup wheat flour and 1/2 cup protein powder.

  8. I ususally add a bit more ground cinnamon and ground nutmeg to give my bread a bit more flavor.
