UltimateMama is always seeking nutritious "treats" for special occasions.  Whether it is for a party, school snacktime, or just because these Ultimate Lemon Zucchini muffins are a hit with kids and adults alike!  Plus, they are simple to make!

Lemon Zucchini Muffins

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/2 cup sugar

2 teaspoons lemon juice

1/4 teaspoon lemon rind

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1 cup shredded zucchini (peel the zucchini then either use a food processor OR continue peeling it into thin pieces

3/4 cup skim milk

3 tablespoons olive oil

1 large egg

Combine the first 6 ingredients in one large bowl. Next, combine zucchini, milk, oil, and egg in a separate bowl. Add wet mix to the flour mixture. Stir until dry ingredients are moist.

Portion the batter among 12 muffin cups (I like to use paper muffin cups with fun colors). Bake at 400° for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool.  Enjoy!
