I also happen to be very passionate about muffins. They're one of my favorite foods to eat before a morning run, and I think they just personally get my day going in the right direction. If you too are a lover of all things muffins and zucchini, this recipe is for you.

It's perfect for single people or college students who want to bake, but don't necessarily want to make an entire dozen, and don't want to be eating the same thing all week long.

Health Benefits of Zucchini:

While I won't pretend these muffins are a health food, there are many health benefits to eating zucchini, which may make you want to add it into your diet when possible. Zucchini is proven to be a good source of a variety of vitamins and minerals, it's high in antioxidants, boost heart health, and strengthen your vision! 

Kitchen Tools for Zucchini Muffins:

You can certainly use a 12-count muffin tin if you already have that, and just fill it half way. I know a lot of people love using silicone muffin liners but I personally feel like they alter the cook times and texture of baked goods, so I choose to use paper liners instead.

Do You Need To Dry Out The Zucchini?

Many Zucchini recipes call for blotting out the zucchini by pressing the shredded bits between paper towels to remove the excess liquid. You do not need to do that for this recipe, as the recipe takes into account the moisture for the zucchini. This recipe is great for beginner cooks as it really saves you the trouble and hassle that typically comes with other zucchini muffin recipes.
