Healthy Zucchini Coconut Muffins

Zucchini is now in season and I like using seasonal vegetables in my recipes. The best part about seasonal vegetables is that they are always fresh and affordable. It is quite easy to incorporate zucchini in stir-fries or in other  vegetable recipes; but if anyone is looking to add this seasonal vegetable into breakfast then muffins are a great alternative. We had Farmer’s Market Morning Glory muffins few weeks back and I love the combination of carrots, coconut, walnut and fruits in them. But I love baking muffins at home as they are fresh and healthy at-least I know what ingredients I am using. So I thought of using whole wheat, rolled oats, brown sugar, zucchini and coconut for my healthy zucchini coconut muffins.healthy zucchini coconut muffins

These muffins are full of fresh shredded zucchini and little coconut which is making them light and fragrant respectively. They are  healthier as I have not used usual ingredients like all purpose flour,egg and butter and made them with whole wheat flour,oats, yogurt and olive oil.  zucchini muffin batter
