Even as a child, I loved these muffins. Very moist and they have a great flavor.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Tender and full of flavor, we really enjoyed these zucchini nut muffins. The perfect way to use extra zucchini. We love all the spices in these zucchini muffins. They make the kitchen smell amazing while the muffins are baking and add flavor. Once baked, they're sweet and spicy with a little crunch from the nuts. For us, it made 12 muffins with no extra batter.
