These are really great muffins, I have a lot of zucchini this time of the year, so this is a great recipe to use some it.

Really good recipe. I am not a fan of walnuts or raisins in muffins. Instead I added 1 tsp of vanilla and substituted 1

these are so good, but i added apple sauce to the mix to make batter more moist, it's a keeper!

Finally found a way to use up all that zucchini I keep buying.However, let me tell you what I changed . I use raw tubinado sugar cutting amt. in half. Plenty sweet for me.Replaced canola oil with coconut oil. Basically all else was the same. Never had better zucchini muffins.When I doubled recipe I got 6 muffins (25-30) min. and 2 small loaf pans ( which took 35-40 min. )Sooooo Sooooo Good.

This is a super easy recipe and the muffins taste delicious. I double the recipe always as they are so popular, 6 is never enough for my husband alone. Yum Yum. Thank you for sharing a good recipe.

I usually make bread with my garden zucchini, but decided to try muffins. I'm so glad I picked this one to follow! It was very easy to double. The muffins look and taste great; very moist! I used chopped dried cranberries instead of raisins which offset any sweetness. This will be my go-to recipe. By the way, the batter will look thick and dry before adding the zucchini...it loosens up and goes into muffin pan nicely. Enjoy!

Very good! I doubled the recipe for 12 standard muffins and used half whole wheat pastry flour. I was looking for something sweet so added chocolate chips instead of currants. A keeper recipe!

Delicious!! Made this with zucchini from the farmers market!

Delicious! Omitted the raisins and nuts to accommodate my family of picky eaters and had to use a standard dozen muffin tin...made 8 standard muffins, but they were relatively low in terms of height (which was likely due to me overworking my batter). Family loved them and will definitely make them again because of how easy they were to make!

I agree with "leabish" that these are a bit sweet for my taste. I used ww pastry flour as well and maybe a bit more than 1/4 cup of raisins. Might make these again. They're fine, just not really outstanding.
