It is time again to head to the kitchen with your kids & teach them how to bake a great healthy treat.

Yummy healthy Muffins using Zucchini, Einkorn flour & applesauce. zucchini

Today I want to share with you one of our favorite recipes using grated Zucchini that even kids love & that you can customize to fit your desires. We baked in Silicone Baking Cups I was testing for a seller, but you can use any muffin pans or cups. As you can see by my pictures they went a bit crazy & frosted the muffins. trust me Zucchini muffins are as good looking as they are tasting & they do not look or taste like some freakish healthy muffin.

Healthier Zucchini muffins kids will love:


  • Preheat oven to 350 F.
  • In 1 large bowl mix the sugar, salt, vanilla, & egg whipping them together.
  • After well blended mix in the applesauce & oil & then slowly add the zucchini & mix in till well mixed in
  • In another bowl mix other dry ingredients together (flour, baking soda, cocoa & cinnamon)
  • Add dry ingredients to first bowl folding in until mixed but not over mixing.
  • Next add any optional ingredients (we like to add pecans, dark chocolate chips & white chocolate chips) just fold in till mixed.
  • Spoon in batter to Galley Essentials baking cups, we usually only fill them 1/2 to 3/4 full, no need to grease cups but sometimes we do. (so if using normal muffin tin do grease them).
  • bake by putting baking cups on a cookie sheet.
  • Bake 20 to 30 minutes until done.
  • Let muffins sit & cool before removing, frost if desired (my kids desired) & add any toppings.

Silicone Baking Cups By Galley Essentials Make Baking Fun and Easy: Review

I love to teach my kids to bake healthier treats & to even use baking as part of math class, having them measure out & weigh things, add up the total etc & teaching them why better ingredients make a healthier treat & how fun & tasty baking from scratch can be.baking cups 1

My kids really love using silicone baking cups because they are nice bright colors, easy to use & wash & even though they are silicone they are reusable eliminating the need for using paper liners to get pretty muffins & cupcakes.

These Galley Essentials baking cups come in 4 great colors that kids love, we for the most part do not have issues with the muffins sticking but did have a few that stuck in spots.
