We simply love this time of year with all the fresh vegetables and fruit! Our garden is beginning to produce zucchini and we will be picking green beans within the next couple days. Our weather took a turn last week, with chilly days and even colder nights, which isn’t good for the tomato crop, but hopefully it will warm back up again so we can enjoy them.
Last week I shared my favorite Chocolate Zucchini Cake recipe, if you missed it, be sure to check it out, it’s a must bake. Today I have a delicious Zucchini Raisin Muffin recipe for you. It’s packed with good-for-you ingredients, but don’t tell the kiddos, they will never know.
The combination of zucchini and raisins, makes these muffins really moist as well as giving them a delicious flavor! You can certainly make up a couple batches of these, freeze them and have them ready for a busy weekday breakfast! And with school coming quickly, these would make a great lunch box treat too.
I often like leaving the skins on the zucchini and just grating them. It gives the muffins a different look, but they say that there are nutrients in the skin as well. But you can certainly peel the zucchini and chop it in the food processor.
