Don’t you just love summer?  Besides all the summer adventures and hot weather, the food this time of year is just the best.  The markets are full of fresh vegetables and fruit, making cooking and baking so easy!  I especially look forward to endless zucchini.  I really wish I could grow zucchini in my little yard.  My mom used to grow the best zucchini plants, so we would have tonnes around, but I just can’t seem to grow them in my garden.  I read somewhere that you could grow zucchini in pots so I tried that and it didn’t work at all.  I think next year I might have to dig out a little plot in our yard to grow them…that’s how much I love zucchini.  We’ll see.

Anyway, for now I’m lucky to have farmers markets available to buy this delicious vegetable.  There are just so many delicious things I need to make with zucchini.  Recipes like zucchini fritters, skillets, cakes, loaves, pancakes and now these muffins!

Zucchini Muffins  {A Pretty Life}

This is basically the recipe I use for my zucchini loaves, but instead I used it to make muffins.  Muffins are easy to transport and freeze so every once in a while I prefer to make them, especially in the summer.  I take them on picnics, out on day adventures and camping…the kids love them, and so do I!

  • Reply Charlotte Moore August 24, 2015 at 9:33 AM I left a message earlier but don't see it. I just took these from the oven. YUMMY!!! I did use whole wheat flour, raw sugar, and put choc. chips in 1 doz. I also had a little extra batter and put unsweetened coconut with the chocolate. It was wonderful!! I didn't use cupcake liners and that was a mistake. Hard to get from the pan. Only had a couple barely stuck.
