Zucchini Muffins

We have an abundance of zucchini from our garden right now.  The most recent one we picked was huge, 7lbs, of course we had to weigh it!



I think it grew overnight.  We made some zucchini muffins for the freezer.  This is a recipe that was given to us by someone a very long time ago and we make it when zucchini is in season.  This recipe gives two dozen muffins or you can make loaves.  

3cups flour
2 cups sugar
1tsp baking powder
3tsp cinnamon
1tsp salt
1tsp nutmeg

Mix the above ingredients together in a large bowl.

In another small bowl whisk together:

1 cup oil and 4 eggs
then add 2 cups of grated zucchini (grated with the peel on and do not drain)


Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in wet ingredients and stir just until combined.

of course for fun we add 3/4 cup chocolate chips.


Place in muffin tins and bake at 350F for about 18-20 minutes until done.


If you are making loaves bake for about an hour. Test to make sure it is baked all the way through.




These freeze well also. If I freeze the loaf I slice and wrap the individual slices before freezing.

  1. I am a bit confused, as I just do not like zucchini but are these sweet muffins? They look so nice… Might give them a go, although do they taste like zucchini, I guess grating them might help…

      Yes, these are sweet muffins. You really do not taste zucchini and probably won’t even know it is in there. The zucchini is grated so it just sort of melts into the muffins (like carrot muffins), you mainly taste the spice mixture and chocolate chips if you choose to use them.
