I end up feeling like Bubba & his shrimp. Zucchini fritters, zucchini pancakes, zucchini bread, fried zucchini, grilled zucchini, boiled zucchini.....
These are our favorites. I made them for breakfast (again) one morning recently while Greg and Dale were out for their daily run/bike ride (respectively). Even though it was early, I already had a little helper in the kitchen.
I like that these muffins have a couple of variations, because when you are
Start by mashing a small-medium banana in your mixing bowl. Add eggs, oil, grated zucchini, vanilla and sugar. The banana is optional, but we almost always have a stray that needs to be eaten, so our muffins usually start with a banana, no matter which variation I'm making.
I always cheat and mix my dry ingredients on top of the wet before stirring them together. One less bowl to wash. Either way, you'll now need flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda.
Bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes (15 for mine) and you've got some yummy muffins!
But you can't have my happy little helper. :)
