Zucchini-Lemon Muffins

Zucchini-Lemon Muffins

(I read the online reviews and tweaked accordingly. I only put in 1 1/2 cups of flour and added an additional 1/2 cup of sugar. I also added a teaspoon of lemon extract and the juice I squeezed from the lemon I grated for the rind. I added blueberries right before putting in pan. And these freeze well.)

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 teaspoons grated lemon rind
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 cup coarsely shredded zucchini
3/4 cup skim milk
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 large egg
Cooking spray

Combine the first 6 ingredients in a bowl, and make a well in center of mixture. Combine zucchini, milk, oil, and egg; stir well. Add to flour mixture, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened.
Divide batter evenly among 12 muffin cups coated with cooking spray. Bake at 400° for 20 minutes or until golden. Remove from pans immediately, and let cool on a wire rack.
Yield: 1 dozen (serving size: 1 muffin)
