Baby menu: Zucchini Banana Whole Wheat Muffins

Wanted to make a healthy, carby snack to help little guy power through his afternoons and adapted from a couple of different recipes for apple banana muffins. Found the existing recipes to be too sweet so adjusted accordingly.


  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup agave syrup (will probably cut this to 2T next time, it was still too sweet with so much banana)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 bananas, mashed
  • 1 small zucchini, grated (instead of apple)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Whisk together dry ingredients: flours, oats, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk the remaining ingredients together.
  4. Slowly add the flour mixture into the wet ingredients and stir until just combined.
  5. Grease two muffin tins or line with muffin cups and fill each cup 3/4 full with the batter.
  6. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Makes about 16 regular sized muffins.
