This is my favorite muffin recipe. They come out so moist and delicious. My garden was over-run with zucchini so I made these muffins, froze them and had them through out the year. They freeze very well.
- 3 eggs
- 1 cup oil
- 1 2⁄3 cups sugar
- 1⁄3 cup brown sugar
- 2 cups zucchini, grated
- 3 cups flour, sifted
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄4 teaspoon baking powder
- 3 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 cup walnuts, chopped
- Beat the eggs until they are light and foamy.
- Add the sugar, oil and zucchini.
- Blend well with a spoon.
- Mix the dry ingredients and add to the egg mixture; blend well.
- Add the nuts, and spoon into greased muffin tins.
- Bake at 325°F for 20 minutes.
These were amazing!! Only thing I would suggest is that you let them cool completely before storing. Mine were still a little warm and this produced an entirely different texture from the ones that were eaten straight from the pan.
I just finished making 3 batches of these. Delicious. I put them in freezer bags (12 per) and then we have them all winter. I made 2 batches without nuts (for the weird people who don't like nuts...) I also used 1/2 c applesauce for 1/2 the oil, and used about 1 c sugar, but upped the brown sugar a bit. Great way to use some of the abundant zucchini!
Another happy Zucchini Nut Muffins maker here! I used the 1/2 cup applesauce/1/2 up canola oil trick. Also, I didn't have a flour sifter, so I just used plain flour unsifted -- it seemed to work, although I don't know if it would be better or worse than with sifted flour. I found that this recipe makes A LOT! And these things are filling, too. I usually binge eat batches of cookies/muffins within 3 days, but this recipe kept me going for a good week. I am a young guy and eating 3 of these for breakfast basically kept me going for the whole first half of the day. So expect a very hearty and satisfying muffin.. Thank you for sharing!
