Zucchini Muffins


I admit it.  I'm not a morning person, and sometimes my kids' breakfast suffers.  Cold cereal.  A banana and a cheese stick.  A bag of Cheerios in the car.  It creates a bit of mommy guilt.

For the first day of school, however, I decided throw the guilt aside and make some muffins.  The fact that these portable goodies are actually hiding vegetables is a bonus!



Sorry for the lack of photos.  I baked these at 10:30 at night, which, come to think of it, might explain why I'm not a morning person!


Enjoy!

  6. Yum! These look fantastic! I have a ton of zucchini right now that definitely need to be used ASAP. I am not a morning person either, but I have a tendency to stay up late too (definitely need to work on that).

  8. Pics are fantastic--and my son LOVES zucchini bread & muffins. I have a basic recipe I use, but I may try yours to compare. He will be thrilled, and I'll double it to freeze some for busy mornings or lunches.

    I'm delighted you linked to Food on Fridays this week!
