Easy Zucchini Muffins

Moist and delicious plus they use up the pantry!

This week my niece Julia reminded me of an awesome recipe we posted here last September for Chocolate Chip Zucchini Loaf. She made it for her family and they all raved about it! With zucchini overflowing in our gardens this late August, I decided to try that recipe again, but this time as muffins.

This time, to the moist zucchini batter I added what ever I had in the pantry. You need 3/4 of a cup in total so try: chocolate chips or chopped dried cherries, dried apricot,  figs, dates, pecans, dried cranberries… be creative!

I had chocolate chips and chopped dried cherries on hand, so in they went.

Kids (and adults) will never know you have hidden the veggies inside this delicious treat! Enjoy!

    I love zucchini bread because of the moistness and the flavour boost with the added spices. These muffins with the chocolate chips and dried fruit additions look fabulous. What a hearty addition to any lunch.
