Day 18 BM #51 -
My kids are very fond of Zucchini. They love it in any form served to them. I usually bake them so they can snack on them. It so happened that the other day I had just 1 small zucchini and I had to use it up. So I thought to make these muffins.
I shared these muffins with my friends and their kids were happy to help me with their rocking feedback!!

Whole Wheat Flour 1 cup [I used whole wheat white flour]
All Purpose Flour/Maida 1/2 cup
Baking Powder 1/2 tsp
Baking Soda 1/2 tsp
Cinnamon Powder 2 tsp
Nutmeg Powder 1/4 tsp
Cardamom Powder 1/2 tsp
Cloves 2-3, powdered
Salt 1/4 tsp
Zucchini, grated 1 cup
Yogurt/ Curds 1/2 cup
Sugar 1/2 cup
Cooking Oil 1/2 cup
Chocolate chips as a topping (optional)
Method Of Preparation -
Blend the yogurt, Oil and sugar until the sugar is completely dissolved.
In a mixing bowl, sieve the flours, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon powder, nutmeg powder, cardamom powder, clove powder and salt.
Add the yogurt mixture into the flour along with the grated zucchini and gently mix to make a lump free batter. The batter is slightly thick.
Preheat the oven to 375 °F. Line the muffin plate with the liners.
Using a scoop, fill up the mini muffin liners with the batter. I topped each muffin with a mini chocolate chip.
Bake in the center rack for about 18 min. Check to see if they are cooked through using a toothpick.
Cool on a wire rack and enjoy!
