Healthy Zucchini Muffins

1 2/3 c. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1 egg
1/2 c. maple syrup
1/2 c. milk (almond milk, 2% milk, or whatever you prefer)
1/4 c. melted coconut oil
1 tsp. vanilla extract, store-bought or homemade
1 1/2 c. grated fresh zucchini
1/3 c. old-fashioned oats (uncooked), plus extra for sprinkling

Heat oven to 350°F. Prepare a 12-cup muffin pan by either greasing it with cooking spray or lining the cups with paper liners. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt until combined. Set aside.

In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together egg, maple syrup, milk, coconut oil and vanilla extract until combined. Pour this mixture into the dry ingredient mixture, and stir with a spoon until just combined. (Do not overmix.) Stir in the zucchini and oats until just combined.

Portion the batter evenly between 12 baking cups. Then sprinkle extra oats on top of each, if desired. Bake for 13-18 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the muffin comes out clean. Transfer pan to a cooling rack, then serve the muffins warm, or let cool to room temperature, then store in a sealed container for up to 2 days, or freeze.
