My wife once asked me to make her some Zucchini Muffins. Yes, you heard that right. Why? Not sure. Maybe because they are healthier? In any case, happy wife, happy life. So I made these for her.
I've posted on this blog before that I am not a big fan of Zucchini. I wish I knew why I didn't care for Zucchini so I can begin to enjoy them. I mean they don't have that much flavor.
Anyways, I had to try one of these Zucchini muffins and they turned out much tastier than I thought they would. My Dad would be so proud if he knew I tasted Zucchini.
💭 Recipe Tip
Don't you hate it when raisins get stuck together in a big clump? To unstick the raisins, wet your hands with a little water then work the raisins apart.

Made these zucchini muffins as I had loads of zucchini. These were so easy to make and did not take much time. The only ingredient I left out was the nuts as I have a son who has a nut allergy. But I must say I added double raisins as these are a favourite in my family. They freeze very well and are good for breakfast.
