These healthy lemon zucchini muffins were light, lemony and so moist. Made with whole wheat flour, plain yogurt and zucchini. Extremely delicious!

My neighbour makes this recipe every summer which in turn inspired this recipe of mine, followed by banana zucchini muffins a year later. Of course, my end result ended up being a completely different thing. Aren’t many of us known for that?!

I made muffins instead of a loaf. Just because my kids LOVE muffins way more. Mine do not look as yellow because of the whole wheat flour but are as delicious. Clearly, I wouldn’t use icing sugar for the glaze, so I came up with my own topping that packs in more lemon zest and coconut flakes. Coconut + lemon = good idea.

  1. Hi! These look like a delicious way for me to use up some of my zucchini! Do you think that i could also throw in some blueberries? Thanks!

  2. Noticing your number 2 directions is not very clear “add eggs through salt” but there’s no details about any of the other ingredients

  3. I made these muffins this morning and they are yummy. I couldn’t wait a whole hour before having one for breakfast. I’ll be making these again.

  4. I noticed you don’t put the nutritional facts on your recipes anymore. I can’t wait to make these, I made you’re clean blueberry muffing and my family loves them!
