Lemon Zucchini Muffins

A flavorful muffin packed with zucchini and just the right amount of lemon to have you going back for more!

A few weeks ago, while grocery shopping, I noticed the zucchini on sale. Since my youngest kiddo LOVES zucchini, I try to always incorporate it into at least one dinner a week. Typically,  I make roasted zucchini as a side dish, but I decided to change things up and make muffins instead.

These freeze great, make the perfect breakfast or snack anytime of the day, and the best part about these is my kids eat them up without realizing they are eating zucchini, hehe! The lemon adds just the right amount of sweet/tang and these muffins are incredibly moist!


I had these ready for the oven in under ten minutes and ready to enjoy just twenty minutes later!

Stock your freezer up with these tasty treats for breakfasts on the go! Or make a batch for company coming over, friends gathering, social events, and more!
