10 oz shredded zucchini, all liquid squeezed out
1/2 cup shallots, chopped
1/4 chopped fresh chives
1/2 cup part skim mozzarella
2 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
1/2 cup white whole wheat flour (King Aurthur)
1 tsp baking powder
2/3 cup fat free milk
1 tsp olive oil
2 large eggs, beaten
1/2 tsp kosher salt
fresh cracked pepper to taste
cooking spray (I used my misto)
To make shredding the zucchini easier, just throw it in the food processor. You’ll want to put the zucchini in a cheese cloth and give it a good squeeze to take out all the moisture.
Preheat oven to 400°. Lightly spray a pie dish with cooking spray or your misto. Combine zucchini, shallots, chives, and mozzarella cheese in a bowl.
Sift flour and baking powder in a medium bowl. Add remaining ingredients to the bowl and blend well. Combine with zucchini mixture and pour it into the pie dish.

12 servings. Hands-on time, 18 minutes. Total time, 48 minutes.

Combine remaining 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese, breadcrumbs, and melted butter in a medium bowl, toss with fork until breadcrumbs are moistened.
Spoon 1 Tbsp. breadcrumb mixture into each muffin cup, press into bottom and up sides to form crust. Spoon 1 Tbsp. crab mixture into each crust.
Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until golden brown.
Cool in pans 5 minutes. Run a knife around edges of crab cakes to loosen, gently lift cakes from pan. Serve warm or at room temperature topped with Chive Aioli.

½ cup mayonnaise
1 Tbsp. chopped fresh chives
1 tsp. Dijon mustard
