Apple Zucchini Healthy Snacks
I know you're probably thinking that those muffins just look way too delicious to be healthy. The secret is that there's zucchini and apple in them so they're the perfect way to sneak in some extra fruits and vegetables. I love using my KitchenAid Mixer to make these because it does such a great job combining the dry ingredients with the zucchini and apples. You don't have to worry about taking a bite and finding a huge portion of zucchini all in the same spot within these muffins. I didn't think it was fair that I shared a recipe that was ideal for a mixer without giving you a chance to win one! You read that right! We want you to win a KitchenAid Mixer to Bake in Color this Holiday Season!

Did you go visit all the other ladies? They are amazing aren't they and I bet you're hungry too because their photos are Ah-mazing! I've learned that I either need one of these muffins in my hand when I visit their sites or I better wait until after I've eaten. Plus, I forgot to mention that these muffins are mini so to me that it makes them the perfect healthy snacks.
One of my favorite things about the start of Fall is that the bounty of summer, zucchini, runs into apple picking season so I'm able to combine the two together. It's a gold mine of a season for parents like myself trying to sneak in extra fruits and vegetables on their unknowing children.

Sometimes when I make our zucchini bread or banana bread, I will spoon dallops of it onto a cookie sheet--the kids think they are cookies but they are whole-wheat and healthy. 🙂
