Banana Zucchini Muffins
As the air turns cooler I’m in the baking mode and with that comes lots of fun new ideas. So today I bring you Banana Zucchini Muffins which are the perfect snack, breakfast or even a quick lunch. When gardening time is in full swing I always take the time to freeze some zucchini into 1 cup portions so I have them for recipes like this one. If you don’t have any frozen just head to your local store and pick up a zucchini because I’m sure they will have at least one. I also use “frozen” bananas that don’t get eaten before they are two ripe to enjoy. That way I can save money without having to try and I have things on hand that allow me to bake with. So for me it’s a win, win. But for the next batch I’m thinking I need to add some choclate chips to make it a little more like dessert.

 Baking Tips

  • Crack eggs into bowl. Use clean plastic water or pop bottle. Place bottle mouth against egg yolk – and squeeze to separate from white.
  • Never over mix muffins and quickbreads. Fold dough with large spoon until flour is barely mixed and dough is lumpy.
  • Don’t just bring your butter to room temperature when preparing to bake: Do it to the eggs you’re planning to use also.
