My kids absolutely love these muffins! What a great way to get rid of my extra zucchinis!

These were delicious. A little too sweet though. Next time I will half the sugar. I also used whole wheat pastry dough instead of all purpose.

Best zucchini recipe ever! I made these in tiny loaf pans and they are a huge hit!!! I've had friends bring me zucchini and pay me to make more for them! I do it without the currants, but with the walnuts, and I sub coconut oil for the canola oil - absolutely divine! I make a double batch and it does 9 mini loaves,

This makes a nice small batch of muffins. Next time I might double the recipe. They are super moist and very yummy!

I would have rated this 5 stars if I had felt the batter didn't need a bit more liquid. Here's what I did (by the way, they were delicious). This is a keeper.

I doubled the recipe and got 12 perfect muffins in my black OXO silicone muffin pans (baked for exactly 22 min.)

I omitted the currants/raisins, kids didn't want them. I added about 2 tsp. vanilla; 3 tbsp Chia seeds (good and nutritious, like poppy seeds); 3-4 tbsp milk to moisten up the batter before baking.

Also, because of another rating I read, I did double the eggs, but decided, after whipping them to take about 1 tbsp out as not to make them too eggy tasking.
