Zucchini season is upon us. Unlike my husband, I really like zucchini. Small, tender zucchinis are great grilled, baked or stir fried. However, if you take your eyes off your garden for long, you will end up with gigantic, monster zucchinis. Gigantic monster zucchinis are not the tastiest zucchinis to eat. So, when you you scream “AAAAAAGHHHHH the Zucchini Monster has arrived!!!!!” how about making some delicious Blueberry Zucchini muffins instead?
With 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.
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.
