  • 2 cups  bran cereal I used a generic crunchy raisin bran cereal but you can use a GF oat bran cereal as well
  • 1 cup  zucchini  shredded
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 cups flour for GF sub Namaste flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Prepare a 12-cup muffin tin by spraying with a nonstick spray or by inserting paper muffin liners in tin.
  2. In a large bowl, combine cereal, zucchini (which has been squeezed between paper towels to reduce water content), milk, egg, butter and sugar. Stir to combine.

  3. Sift flour, baking powder, ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon together and add to cereal/zucchini mixture. Stir well.
  4. Using a 1/4 cup measuring cup, fill each muffin cavity with batter, a little over 3/4 full.
  5. Bake for 25-30 minutes, remove to wire rack and allow to cool in pan for 10 minutes. Remove from pan and allow to cool completely before storing.

Recipe Notes

Tip: I like to freeze mine in ziploc bags as they keep longer. Just take out the night before to let thaw or pop into the microwave, straight from the freezer, for 30 seconds and serve warm.
