Celebrate Zucchini Bread Day every day with this yummy recipe

There’s nothing like a yummy zucchini bread recipe to usher in warmer weather. Typically a summer time crop, zucchini can now be found year round at most grocery stores. As always we packed these muffins with growth-boosting nutrients. Check out how we did it! .

 

In honor of National Zucchini Bread Day we thought it would be fitting to have our very own zucchini bread muffins on the blog. So we went to work in the Healthy Height test kitchen to develop our latest recipe. Full disclosure this is not a “healthy” recipe, it’s good old fashioned baking.

This recipe is great because it doesn’t call for you to pack the entire zucchini bread mix full of Healthy Height, instead once the core ingredients come together you’ll pull out ¾ of a cup for your kiddo’s portion.

The Healthy Height portion will make 6 muffins and there will be half a serving of Healthy Height in every two muffins. Unfortunately squeezing an entire portion of Healthy Height into one muffin resulted in something looking and feeling like a baseball. *Note if you prefer to use your own zucchini bread recipe the results may vary.

Let's get growing!

Zucchini Bread Muffins

Ingredients

  • 3 scoops of Plain Healthy Height shake mix
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 ½ cups shredded zucchini, keep a ½ cup of zucchini to the side
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • Pinch of salt

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350.
  2. Cream together the brown sugar, white sugar, eggs and the oil. Once combined add 3 cups of zucchini and mix well.
  3. Sift in your flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. The batter will be fairly thick. At this point scoop out ¾ cup of batter and put into a separate bowl.
  4. To the ¾ cup of batter add your ½ cup of shredded zucchini. Then add 3 scoops of Healthy Height plain shake mix and combine well.
  5. Portion the Healthy Height muffins into 6 muffin tins and the regular batter into the remaining tins. Be sure to note which muffins have Healthy Height in them and which don’t. You should be able to tell, the Healthy Height muffins will be a tad lighter in color.
  6. Pop into the oven for 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  7. Serve warm or cool and store for later.

Nutrition to Help Kids Grow - and Sleep!

Every year our team of Pediatricians at Schneider Children's Medical Center have 20,000 visits from children with issues relating to growth. Our doctors wanted to find a non-invasive way to help children grow and the nutrition in our shake mix is the result of their efforts. The nutrition in our shake mix was shown in a clinical study to promote growth in 6 months, as well as improve sleep patterns in kids who take at least 1 serving per day.
