  • 3/4 cup shredded zucchini (excess water removed)
  • 1/2 cup shredded apple (excess water removed)
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrot (excess water removed)
  • 4 Tbsp butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1.5 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ginger, optional


  1. Mix first 8 ingredients in a large bowl and stir until well combined.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and stir until just mixed. Batter will be very thick. Stir well to ensure all flour is mixed in.
  3. Scoop into greased or lined muffin tins.
  4. Bake at 375 degrees F for 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.


Measure the zucchini, apple and carrots AFTER you squeeze the water out of them. I used 1 medium large zucchini, one large apple and 8-10 baby carrots.

To make the veggie less visable, I often make these in the food processor!
