Tiff’s Zucchini Bread and Muffins:

Spread the love

Thanks to My Litter for this Guest Post,

I am literally going to chew my arm off, I am on a stupid diet and seriously hungry! I know, I know, you aren’t supposed to get this hungry but to save a long story I just am!

The kids are pulling some beautiful produce out of the garden every day and if I serve them sautéed squash one more time for dinner there is going to be mutiny!
So I thought I would torture myself and make zucchini bread and muffins, which aren’t allowed on my diet right now, no matter how ‘healthy’ I make them! I can’t tell you how good my kitchen smells right now… I am slobbering on my key board.
I took an o.k. recipe and made it fantastic ( if you ask me!) the kids gobble these up like cupcakes! The following recipe makes 1 loaf, 8 mini loaves, and 24 muffins.
