Anyone who spends time in the kitchen has a fairly set arsenal of grocery items. For me, one of those food items is whole wheat pastry flour. I find this flour in the bulk bins at Whole Foods for approximately $1.60-$1.70/pound. Unlike whole wheat flour, whole wheat pastry flour is ground from soft wheat, making it the ideal “whole grain” flour for baking. The difference between whole wheat and whole wheat pastry flour are profound, so if you’re looking to add something to your arsenal…I recommend whole wheat pastry flour.
On that note… 🙂
Vegan Zucchini Bread Muffins from Weekly Bite
3 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup canola oil
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 tablespoons vanilla
2 cups grated zucchini
Line muffin tin. Preheat oven to 325º F.
Combine flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, and cinnamon. Set aside.
Mix sugar, canola oil, vanilla, and applesauce until mixed through. Add dry mixture to wet mixture. Mix until combined. Fold in zucchini.
Using an ice cream scooper, drop batter into muffin cups. Muffin cups should be about 3/4 full. Bake for 24 minutes or until tooth pick come out clean. Remove from oven and place muffin tin on cooling rack. Yield: 18 muffins

Result: Estela and I are on the same page when it comes to vegan baked goods — they’re so good! I will take the healthy fat, higher calorie muffins any day…they are so satisfying! I’ve been wanting to make zucchini muffins since I had them in Dallas while visiting our friends Jeff and Liz. They’re delicious…and you can’t beat getting in some veggies at breakfast in the form to baked goods 😉
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! I’m thinking YES as NO ONE was around the blogosphere!! 😀
This is my last week of work – sad! But I am very much so looking forward the following week — a week of nothingness!! I did make yogurt in my CROCK POT (!!) over the weekend, and there will be a full report on that tomorrow! And Mr. Prevention is home this week, so I’ve got a full line-up of new recipes to try! Keep an eye out! 😉
A quick Lily picture — she’s so playful with Mr. Prevention home. His working in Ohio during the weeks has been hard on us both!
And speaking of Mr. Prevention…would you believe me if I told you he LOST 1 1/2 pounds last week? You know, after that entire LARGE Little Caesar’s pepperoni pizza and Buffalo Wild Wings and beer the following night. I pouted all of yesterday. Life just isn’t fair!
Question: I can probably safely assume you love food if you’re visiting my blog — but do you like to grocery shop??
Have a great week!
