Ingredients

  • 2

    cups whole wheat pastry flour

  • 1

    tsp baking soda

  • 1/4

    tsp salt

  • 1/4

    tsp cinnamon

  • 1

    large egg

  • 1/3

    cup packed brown sugar

  • 1/3

    cup low-fat milk

  • 1 1/2

    tsp vanilla extract

  • 1/4

    cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled

  • 1 1/3

    cups freshly grated zucchini

  • 1/3

    cup mashed banana

  • 1/2

    cup mini chocolate chips

  • Brown Butter Glaze:

  • 1/4

    cup unsalted butter

  • 1/2 - 3/4

    cup powdered sugar

  • 1/2

    tsp vanilla extract

  • 1 1/2

    Tbsp milk

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350. In a bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Set aside. Line a muffin tin with liners. 2. In a large bowl, whisk egg and brown sugar together until smooth, then stir in zucchini and mashed bananas. Gradually add in dry ingredients, mixing until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips. Fill each muffin liner 2/3 of the way full with batter (1/4 cup each). 3. Bake for 15-17 minutes, or until tops are no longer wet and become slightly golden. Remove and let cool until comfortable to the touch. Top with brown butter glaze. Brown Butter Glaze: 1. Heat a small saucepan over med-low heat and add butter. Whisk constantly until melted, then continue to whisk as bubbles form, the butter begins to foam and eventually brown bits appear in the bottom of the pan. This will take about 5-6 minutes total. As soon as the brown bits appear, remove from heat. I always stir for an additional 30 seconds or so. Let cool for 10 minutes. 2. In a large bowl, combine brown butter, vanilla extract, and powdered sugar. Whisk until the mixture comes together. Then add in 1 Tbsp of milk, continuing to mix. I always stir my glazes for a good 3-4 minutes so they really come together. If it still doesn't appear glaze-like, add in milk 1/2 Tbsp at a time and mix again. Don't worry if it becomes to liquid - just add a tiny bit of powdered sugar until you get the desired consistency. Spoon glaze on warm muffins or dip each top in the glaze.
