Very good! I used about 1 1/2 cups of zucchini, and 2 bananas. I also cut the butter down to 1/4 cup. Very moist and just the right amount of sweetness. I just used Pam in the muffin tray, and they released pretty well.
Next time I think I'll try replacing the banana with pumpkin!
Oh, I also got a yield of 12 large muffins out of this recipe.

These were really great! I used whole wheat pastry flour and coconut oil instead of butter. They were perfect and I felt satisfied that my kids had a healthy breakfast treat. Thanks for sharing!

I saw the recipe that was a version of this one, called zucchini banana muffins. Went with this one because I felt like the instructions were a little clearer about matching the quantities of banana and zucchini. I had only two bananas for 1 cup of banana and the zucchini I had came to 1 1/2 cup shredded so that is what I used. i then used 2 T. canola oil and 1/2 cup of applesauce instead of butter. And I added 1 t cinnamon and 1/2 cup of chocolate chips because my son adores banana chocolate chip muffins. I left mine a little larger and got a dozen muffins and they are all gone, save one, a scant 5 hours later. So that is an excellent review. Nice moist texture. Excellent taste and I like oatmeal in baked goods. Used old-fashioned oatmeal and worked fine. I believe I will make this again.
