  • 1/3 of a cup of shredded zucchini

  5. In a separate large bowl, mix together the wet ingredients except for the blueberries.
  6. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, and mix them together.
  7. Fold the wild blueberries into the batter.

*I have not tested other flours for this recipe; however, I think regular all-purpose flour or all- purpose gluten-free flour should work.
