Zucchini Cheddar Muffins

Today, I have some amazing breakfast idea for you! These Zucchini Cheddar Muffins are so soft, moist and flavorful, you can’t just have one! These muffins are made with fresh zucchini and extra sharp cheddar for full flavor.

It’s so hard to write about these awesome muffins while it’s storming. Wait…

Ok, better. Got one of these muffins and a cup of coffee! Yay, I feel better.

I love making muffins during the school year because they make such a great and easy breakfast or a snack. I also pack one in the little man’s lunch box for a delicious and filling snack. Hubby likes to grab one as he is running out of the door to got to work. He never has time for breakfast.

Now, I’m alone and curled up on a couch with a textbook. “Boo” for textbook but “yay” for a yummy breakfast. It’s so quiet in here, I love it. I miss my little boy like crazy, but I enjoy the quiet.

Zucchini muffins would have to be my favorite. I get to sneak in veggies and mask it in a muffin. Both boys fall for it every time! It’s like my homemade spaghetti sauce (Oooo, I’ve got to share it with you,) it’s full of hidden veggies but they polish it off in a flash!

The little man is getting pickier and pickier by the day. He is still better at eating veggies than a his dad but but he is still very picky. I remember the days when he would try anything and eat just about anything. Those days are long gone! He’s turned into a normal toddler.

He still loves muffins and cookies though! Gotcha!

  23. Looks great, I can’t wait to try them. Do you squeeze out the extra water from the Zucchinis before put them in the batter?

    • So sorry for a late response! I’m a little behind in emails :( I did not squeeze out the water from zucchini!
