Huckleberry Zucchini Muffins (or bread)

Thank Caitlin for this one who picks up at Bryant Street Market in Highland Park. Looks like someone couldn't wait to taste them! Best warm I'm sure, as most baked goods are:)


  • ½ mashed ripe banana
  • 1 cup milk (I used soy)
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup (I used a combination of maple syrup and agave syrup because I ran out of maple syrup)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1 ¾ cups  spelt flour + ¼ cup corn flour (you could probably use wheat flour instead and no corn flour; this is what I had and used)
  • Large handful of pumpkin seeds
  • Small handful of sunflower seeds
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1.5 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp fine grain sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • Handful of dried cranberries
  • 1 cup huckleberries
  • 1 zucchini
  1. Preheat oven to 350F and grease a muffin tin.
  2. Mash banana; dice up zucchini and add to bowl
  3. Place mashed banana and zucchini into medium bowl with the milk, vinegar, maple syrup, and vanilla..
  4. If coconut oil isn’t already in liquid form, melt it
  5. In a large bowl, mix together the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, and baking soda). **I have a vitamix and tossed the pumpkin and sunflower seeds in with the spelt and corn flour and ground it all into a flour. If you don’t have a vitamix you could just omit the seeds. I added them for extra nutrition and maybe flavor
  6. Stir coconut oil into the wet mixture. Pour wet ingredients onto the dry ingredients and stir until justcombined.
  7. Fold in huckleberries and dried cranberries
  8. Spoon about a heaping 1/4 cup of batter into each muffin tin, filling each tin about 3/4 full. I had leftover batter and no more muffin tins, so I made a small loaf of it too in a glass container
  9. Bake at 350F  for approximately 20 minutes—might vary based on oven. My oven runs really hot, so you might need more time (or less!).
  10. Let them cool before removing from muffin tray
