A delicious mix between a blueberry muffin and zucchini bread, say hello to my Wholesome Zucchini Blueberry Muffins! Made with white whole wheat flour, applesauce, olive oil, coconut oil, almond milk, maple syrup, and honey. No dairy and no sugar added! The moisture from the zucchini and applesauce provides the perfect texture for these scrumptious muffins. The whole wheat flour satiates your hunger and makes you fell fuller longer. And these muffins pack a punch with one serving of your daily fruit and veggies. Win-win situation if you ask me!
I was inspired to create this recipe from, well, what was in my refrigerator. Pretty glamorous right? But honestly, being a good steward of what you have on hand is a great lesson to learn.

P.S. I don’t normally like videos of people falling. I just feel like I’m laughing at their expense. HOWEVER, this video is an exception! An oldie but what a goodie. If you think you are having a rough Wednesday, this should put things into perspective… 🙂
