We’re back again with another vegetable stuffed baked good that we know you are going to love. It’s summer time and the zucchinis this time of year are just too good not to put in everything. If your area has a local farmers market, you’re definitely not going to want to miss out on these Banana Zucchini Muffins. Packed with rich banana flavour, and filled with the extra veg our bodies crave. Even the pickiest of eaters will want a second!
Packed with everything you need.
These muffins are a hit in my family for a reason, they’re delicious AND they are packed with healthy ingredients and very low in sugar.
Each batch of muffin has three whole bananas which are an excellent source of potassium, fiber, vitamin C and of course, great flavour and texture.
These muffins also include 2 whole fresh zucchinis, which are a new favourite baking ingredient in our house. They’re packed with antioxidants, minerals and low in fat, and sugars.
Tips on nailing these Banana Zucchini Muffins.
Muffins are historically a very simple thing to make, but we’ve all had sad, dry, unappealing muffins before. If you follow these simple tips, we’re sure you won’t want to use any other recipe ever again!
Mix and then mix again– When it comes to muffins, you have your wet ingredients and your dry ingredients, it’s super important to make sure each are fully combined and incorporated before you mix them together. This is going to help them bake more evenly and ensure you get the best product every time.
Stab and test– When baking, it can be hard to tell when your recipe is done, or near done. Everyones oven heats, and bakes differently, so it’s important to be able to know when done really means done. Using a cake tester or a bamboo pick is a great way to test. Gently stab the center of the muffins, once you remove the stick, and if there is no badder stuck to the stick, you’re good to go!
Make, freeze it and enjoy it again.
The best thing about recipes like this, is how receptive to freezing they are. If you have a bunch of bananas or zucchinis that you don’t want to go to waist, and you’re looking to make a few batches instead of just one, the freezer is going to be your best friend.
Simply lay them flat in a ziplock bag, or individually wrap in plastic. When you’re ready for a treat, pull a muffin from the freezer, pop it in the microwave with a touch of butter and you’re ready to enjoy!
