Healthy Zucchini Muffins are simply perfect for summer. They are easy, quick and totally delicious.

Zucchini, zucchini, zucchini! It’s certainly that time of year. This delicious vegetable produces almost incessantly in the summer. Thankfully, it’s an incredibly healthy and tasty food.

Muffins are a very healthy breakfast or snack. They have lots of fiber which helps keep blood sugar levels steady longer. There are so many benefits that can come from these ingredients so I’ll name just a few.

Health Benefits

Zucchini is a wonderful source of B vitamins, omega-3 fatty acids, zinc, and magnesium, all of which help with healthy blood sugar regulation. Zucchini can also have anti-inflammatory benefits, anti-cancer benefits, and antioxidant benefits.

Using whole wheat in muffins is always a healthy idea! Despite the bad rep that whole wheat sometimes gets it is in fact extremely good for you. Whole wheat can have benefits such as aiding weight loss, lowering the risk of type 2 diabetes, lessening chronic inflammation and protecting against heart disease. After our experience with going gluten-free, we certainly think it should be in the superfood category!

Oats can help lower cholesterol levels, prevent heart failure, stabilize blood sugar levels and lower the risk of type 2 diabetes. Oats contain manganese, fiber, protein, zinc, and magnesium.

Coconut oil is well known for its health-promoting properties! It can help prevent and/or treat Alzheimer’s disease, reduce inflammation and arthritis, boost the immune system, improve digestion and aid weight loss.

After a closer look at these nutrient-dense foods, it’s easy to see how healthy muffins can be! More nutrients naturally mean better health.

Whether you are looking for a quick snack on the go or a healthy breakfast you really can’t go wrong with Healthy Zucchini Muffins. So let’s eat some muffins!
