A Recipe from Sneaky Kitchen
Zucchini Delight Muffins

1 cup flour
3/4 cup oat bran
1/3 cup sugar
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
3/4 cup milk
1 egg
grated zest from 1 lemon
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp oil, canola, corn or peanut recommended
1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese, fat free or
      reduced fat
1 cup shredded zucchini (unpeeled), lightly packed
cooking spray
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Line 12 muffin tins with paper liners and spray liberally with  cooking spray.

Combine flour, oat bran, sugars, baking powder, baking soda, salt & spices, mashing out any lumps of brown sugar.  Beat together milk & egg. Add lemon juice, zest, oil, cheese & shredded zucchini.   Stir only until well mixed & all ingredients are moistened.  This will make a stiff muffin dough.

Fill cups 3/4 full.  Bake for 20 minutes until very lightly golden browned.  Remove from oven; leave in the pan for about five minutes before serving. 

Serve plain, with butter, lite non-hydrogenated margarine or reduced-fat cream cheese.  By the way, they won't know they're eating veggies unless you tell them!
