Honey and olive oil zucchini muffins

What you will need:

• 3 cups grated zucchini (I used about 2 whole zucchini)
• 2 beaten eggs
• 2 teaspoons vanilla
• 1 cup Morgenster Monte Marcello Extra Virgin Olive Oil
• ⅔ cup real maple syrup
• ⅓ cup raw honey, softened
• 1½ cups whole wheat flour
• 1½ cups all purpose flour
• 2 teaspoons baking soda
• 2 teaspoons baking powder
• ½ teaspoon salt
• 1½ teaspoons cinnamon

How to prepare:

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl, combine the zucchini, eggs, vanilla, olive oil, maple syrup, and honey. Stir gently until mixed; set aside.
2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flours, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Stir to combine and make a well in the middle. Pour the wet mixture from step one into the well and stir just a few times until barely combined. Overmixing makes the muffins tough and hard, so I try to limit myself to 15 big around-the-bowl stirs.
3. Pour the batter in a muffin tin greased with nonstick cooking spray or lined with paper cups. You should be able to get 6-8 jumbo muffins or 15-16 regular sized muffins. Bake for 20 minutes or until the muffins are golden brown and the tops spring back when you press on them.
