Blueberry Zucchini Muffins

Love blueberry muffins but wish they were a little bit healthier? You definitely need to check out my Blueberry Zucchini Muffins. They have the blueberry deliciousness of a classic blueberry muffin with that extra nutritional oomph of zucchini. Your family will love them. Evan even gave them two thumbs up.

Plus, when zucchini season is upon you, they are a great way to used up the gigantic zucchini monsters that grow when you don’t pay attention for a day or two. Small, tender zucchinis are great grilled, baked or stir fried. Gigantic monster zucchinis are not the tastiest zucchinis to eat. So, when you you scream “AAAAAAGHHHHH the Zucchini Monster has arrived!!!!!” make these delicious Blueberry Zucchini muffins instead.

Freeze your Blueberry Zucchini Muffins for Later

Since school is back in session in a few short days/weeks. I am going to make a few batches of these and put them in the freezer. They are super easy to defrost for breakfast or as a lunch box snack.

When you have extra zucchini, shred it and freeze it so you can make these nuggets of joy all year around.
