St. Patrick's Day Zucchini Muffins

There’s just a little bit of margarine in the crumb topping which, divided over 12 muffins, doesn’t even affect the fat count. But leave the topping off if you want–or double it, if you’re feeling decadent.

Ingredients

Dry ingredients:

  • 2 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts optional

Wet ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Ener-G egg replacer
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 1/4 cup shredded zucchini packed
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon agave nectar or other liquid sweetener
  • 1 1/4 cups fat-free soymilk or other non-dairy milk

Optional Cinnamon Crumb Topping:

  • 1 teaspoon margarine or apple sauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon demerara sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 F. Line a muffin pan with paper or silicone liners or spray with non-stick spray.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients. In a medium bowl, whisk the Ener-G egg replacer powder with the water until foamy. Add the remaining wet ingredients and stir to combine.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir just until combined. Do not over-stir. Batter will be very heavy. Spoon into muffin cups, dividing batter equally among the cups. Combine the topping ingredients with a fork until crumbly, and sprinkle the center of each muffin with a little topping, if desired. Bake until a toothpick comes out clean, about 20 minutes.
