Just make sure after you grate the zucchini, and place it on top of a paper towel to drain the excess water. It will prevent getting mushy muffins. This recipe uses only a few ingredients and it’s very easy to make. For more muffin ideas, please see Super Healthy Banana Muffins or my popular Breakfast Egg Muffins recipe.
I really like baking in silicone molds because they won’t stick and are also easy to clean. For this recipe I used a flower type of silicone mold, but you can use any type muffin mold you have available at home. I also like to bake with Bob’s Red Mill Almond Meal Flour for a grain free version, but whole wheat flour will work too if you prefer.
