Zucchini Muffins

Zucchini Muffins

This year my husband and I worked together to plant a big garden.  I have tried to grow our own veggies in the past but, well lets say my thumb is not too green and it just did not work out.  However with my hubby’s help this year our garden is doing great! And right now we have a LOT of zucchini!

Since we have so much zucchini, I have been putting it in everything (it is GREAT in pasta sauce).  But I thought I would try and make some yummy muffins too.  So I found this recipe over at My Recipes.com.  I was trying to find a zucchini muffin recipe that was healthier than many of the others I found but had great reviews so that it would actually taste good enough that my girls would eat them.  And well this recipe is that.

I was so excited when I tried one of the muffins because they are YUMMY!  And my girls loved them, we even brought some over to the neighbors and they loved them too.  So if you are looking for a healthier version of Zucchini Muffins that taste awesome then you have got to try these they won’t disappoint!

    I’ve never made a veggie muffin before! These look yummy. My kids love carrot cake- would it work to have a little cream cheese frosting on these too? Thanks for the post! Pinning it :-)

    Yummmm! I love zucchini, but mine didn’t grow this year. Last year I had a ton too. Once I put it into a food processor and added some butter, lemon juice and soy sauce to make a sauce for pasta. I loved it, but the rest of the family isn’t as keen on zucchini:)

    I get lots of zucchini at the farmer’s market, but I don’t love my zucchini bread recipe. So many of them have so much oil, but yours is much healthier. I’m going to pin it and give it a try when we get the next batch – thanks! Visiting from LOBS – have a great weekend!

    Oh, yum!! Sounds like my parents house every summer. My mother has the Zucchini Cookbook to use all the zucchini my father grows for her. Thank you for sharing at Sharing Saturday!!

    I’m waiting for a few more zucchini to be ready to harvest and then I’m going to make this recipe. I clicked on the original recipe and it looks like everything but the zucchini was doubled for your version. (The original recipe calls for 1 1/3c zucchini.) Was this a typo and should it be 2 2/3c zucchini for this recipe, or did you use 1 2/3c? Thanks!

      Oh WOW thank you for catching that! It was a typo and it should be 2 2/3 cup. I fixed it in the post, and thank you SO MUCH for catching it for me!

    I made these today an they are delicious! My daughter (who doesn’t like zucchini) devoured two. Thanks for such a delicious and healthy recipe!

      I am so glad you and your daughter liked them! Everyone I make these for just loves them. Thanks for letting me know how they turned out, I just love the feedback!

    I made these (here) and they were a huge hit, esp with my husband’s best friend who can’t eat dairy. Thanks so much for the recipe! I’ll be making them next year for sure when zucchini is aplenty.

    Thanks for the recipe! I’ve tried a few other recipes but this one was the only keeper! I think the sugar on top adds a nice texture and just an extra sweet kick. Loads of zucchinis this year so I’ll be returning to this recipe soon.

      So glad you liked them Sara! Last year we had so many zucchinis I was sticking them in every thing I made, but this recipe was one of my favorites, and the kids loved them!
