Zucchini Muffins

My kids LOVE muffins and I’m even more excited to share that they both love Zucchini Muffins!

Who knew that ZUCCHINI MUFFINS of all things could be accepted as part of a delicious dessert? That’s right! My kids happily will accept Zucchini Muffins as a yummy treat after dinner.

Recently, I was at a client’s house and I admired her MASSIVE zucchini that had been picked fresh from the garden. It was HUGE, as wide around as my arm, absolutely HUGE! I was inspired to get myself some zucchini (sadly, much smaller in size) and do some baking. One favourite baked item that I like to make this time of year when zucchini is in abundance is my Chocolate Chip Banana Zucchini Bread.

I often make a few loaves of this bread, pre-slice it, wrap it and store it in the freezer for school lunches.


For people who enjoy a much sweeter version, here is another Super Moist Zucchini Bread recipe for you to try.
