Do you know what yesterday was?

Why, it was none other than National Zucchini Bread Day… a very special day – right up there with Thanksgiving and Christmas as one of the most important days in the history of forever and ever.

Or… maybe not.

But still, a day worth celebrating with homemade zucchini muffins. 

When I realized how few zucchini recipes there are on my blog, it made me sad.

So today you get my best zucchini muffin recipe!

A great way to use up zucchini, they’re the perfect healthy muffins for breakfast, snack, or dessert.

Or maybe even dinner.

Hey, they’re practically a vegetable! 😉

It’s obviously too late to go back and make these zucchini muffins for National Zucchini Day this year, but do not despair!

National “Sneak some Zucchini onto your Neighbor’s Porch” Day is August 8th.

Yes, that really is an actual holiday.

Super weird, right?

The muffins make a great breakfast paired with Tofu Scramble or a Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie.

    These were delicious! My kids said they were “the best in the whole wide world” 🙂 I subbed 2 mushy bananas in for the applesauce and oil, and they turned out great. However it only ended up making 8 muffins total, so next time I’ll double the recipe. Thanks!!
