  • 2 Whole Large Eggs

  • 1 ¼ Cups of Coarsely Grated Zucchini (Do not peel. Cut in half and scoop out the seeds. (After grating, blot with a paper towel to remove some of the moisture.)

Streusel Topping 

  • ½ Cup of Oats

  • 1 Teaspoon of Ground Cinnamon
  • 6 Tablespoons Brown Sugar 
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 6 Tablespoon of Melted Unsalted Butter


Preheat your oven to 375°

Line a 12 cup muffin pan with paper liners.

Make the streusel topping:

Combine the oats, flour, cinnamon, brown sugar and salt. Pour in the melted butter and mix until combined. Set aside.


 In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, or a large bowl using a hand mixer, cream together the butter, sugars, vanilla and cinnamon until light and fluffy about 3-4 minutes.

Add the eggs one at a time and beat on medium until combined and then mix in the sour cream.

Add the zucchini and walnuts and mix on low until just combined.

Whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  Add to the bow and mix on low until just combined.

Divide the batter evenly amongst the 12 cups.  Top each with about 2 tablespoons of streusel topping.

Bake in the middle of the oven for 18 minutes. Let cool in the muffin tins for about 15 minutes.

Remove from the tin and place on a metal rack to cool completely.
