Very good!! I used all white flour bcz. I don't have whole wheat. They were very light. Perfect for breakfast or late night snack. Will try using applesauce for much of the oil next time and maybe up the spice amounts a little, but really enjoyed as is. Thanks Tish for a delicious way to use up the zucchini.
Loved these! They were a hit. I really enjoyed how moist they were. My kids really liked them too. I added only about 1/2 c raisins but think I could've done the whole cup. I will definitely make these again.
Great! I made the recipe exactly as is and got 12 large muffins. I'll probably add more dried fruit next time - I only added raisins this time - and may up the spices a little bit. Overall, nice consistency and good flavor.
