Zucchini Muffins

These muffins are made with my Baking Mix and help to use up even MORE zucchini! :) You can also use shredded, peeled apple in place of the zucchini. The Apple Pie spice really makes a difference, I put allspice and cardamom in mine. The dried lemon peel also takes these muffins from ho-hum to yum-yum! :)

Zucchini Muffins
2 cups Baking Mix
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons Apple Pie spice mix (or 1 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg)
1/2 teaspoon dried lemon peel
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup finely shredded, unpeeled zucchini
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 egg, beaten

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a large bowl, combine Baking Mix, sugar, Apple Pie spice, dried lemon peel and walnuts; mix well. Stir in zucchini. In a separate bowl, combine milk, butter and egg; add to dry ingredients and stir just until moistened.
Divide batter between 18 greased muffin tins or use paper liners.
Bake at 400 degrees for 15 to 17 minutes or until done. Let cool in pans for 5 minutes then remove from pans and cool completely on a rack. Makes 18 muffins.
