One thing that I really love about zucchini is that it adds wonderful moisture to baked goodies without big flavor changes. It’s, of course, going to bump up the nutrition a bit too.


Remember these three tips when making muffins:

  • Avoid over mixing the batter.
  • Fill muffin cups three-fourths full.
  • Don’t leave the muffins in the pan or in the silicone cups for over 5 minutes to cool. This will cause them to overcook and possibly be soggy on the bottom.

Using silicone or paper liners will prevent you from needing grease or using a non-stick spray in your muffin tin. The silicone liners slip off easily from the muffins and are dishwasher-safe.
