Hey guys, I’ve got another zucchini recipe! Are you surprised?

So by now, are you wondering how my family feels about zucchini? Zucchini is becoming the “new sandwich” in our house. You know what I’m talking about. I make sandwiches every day for school and suddenly, after two weeks, my kids are begging for something different. Yogurt. Soup in a thermos. ANYTHING but another sandwich.

However, if I broke out a basket of these Zucchini Muffins at breakfast, there would be no groans whatsoever. Seriously. These are THAT good.

I know what you’re thinking…how is that possible? There is no chocolate. No glaze. No frosting.

Trust me when I tell you that these muffins don’t need any of that. My kids have said these are better than any bread, cake, or brownie made with zucchini. #whoarethey??? I’ll admit, they are pretty amazing.

And I have my friend Erin to thank! A couple weeks ago I asked for some zucchini recipes from some of my food blogging friends. I had 20 cups of shredded zucchini to use, and I already had made 10 loaves of bread, and two cakes. She shared a link to these zucchini muffins and I made them immediately. Like, that minute (no joke). Each batch makes about a dozen muffins…and I double the recipe that evening and put them in the freezer. My kids devoured the first batch in minutes. Admittedly, I helped. I couldn’t keep my hands (or mouth) out of them.

Now two weeks later I pulled a loaf of Crunchy Streusel Zucchini Bread out of the freezer for breakfast. My youngest immediately said, can’t you grab some of those muffins too!?! It’s shocking that such a simple (NON CHOCOLATE) muffin can get my kids so excited for breakfast. But, one bite and you’ll completely understand!!

  1. Yum! Love zucchini in baked goods. These sound delightful — and I love that they don’t need glaze or anything!

  2. Delicious! This looks like a great breakfast recipe. I have only made one batch of zucchini muffins this year – I need to bake with zucchini more often.

  3. Yay for more zucchini muffins and for ones that the kids want to devour!!!  I love it!!!  I bet the kitchen smells amazing while these are in the oven!

  4. If I were your kid, I’d never complain. My mom wasn’t much of a baker. And muffins means a great breakfast. So keep them coming!
