I only had one squash amongst three plants. Major let down! Better luck next year I guess.
Growing up, my mom always made two kinds of muffins/loafs; banana and zucchini. These past few days, I’ve been staring at the lone zucchini on my counter dreaming of ways to use it up. Lots of ideas came to mind, but I was feeling particularly nostalgic and wanted something simple and familiar.
These muffins are one of my all time favorites! I used mini chocolate chips to allow for better distribution and sprinkled some on top of each muffin after I had scooped the batter into the cups. These are sure to please even the pickiest eaters.
