Zucchini Muffins

I’m only on my 3rd zucchini of the season and already at a blank for what I should do with them…how sad is that! Zucchini are interesting things. You spend most of the year wishing you could have some fresh ones, and a couple months dreading going to the garden and finding yet another one 🙂

I tried one of my friends recipes for Zucchini Nut Muffins today and they turned out great though. I just made mine sans nuts because I’ve never been a big fan of nuts in my food. This would be a great recipe to make again so I have breakfasts ready for the week.

Using 1/4 cup of batter per cup would make about 9 muffins. I’ll be dividing them up into 6 muffins in the future because you can see in my cast iron muffin topper pan they came out pretty flat and un-muffin like because of the large cups. But even at 6 they are 331 calories each, not bad for a grab-and-go breakfast option.

    LOL Oh that familiar dread of what you will find when you peak under the squash leaves! The squash go from pencil thin to monsterous, seemingly overnight! I have been picking about five squash a day–and I think my friends and family are close to saying “NO MORE!”….lol we will see about that!
