Ingredients

  • 1 cup shredded zucchini
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar (optional)
  • Optional mix-ins: chocolate chips, raisins, or walnuts.

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350.
  2. If your zucchini is really wet, press it slightly to remove some of the water. You should end up with 1 cup of loosely packed shredded zucchini.
  3. Combine the zucchini with the coconut oil, maple syrup, egg, yogurt, and vanilla.
  4. Stir in the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.
  5. I added in 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips at this point!
  6. Spray a 9×5 pan with non-stick spray. Pour in the batter.
  7. Sprinkle with brown sugar on top, if desired.
  8. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
