Not half bad!

If I'm being honest with myself, I didn't have high hopes for these muffins. What I did have was a zucchini and carrot sitting in my fridge just waiting to go bad. They're only lightly sweet, which is a nice change. The veggies are really visible, so I don't think kids would go for it.

I thought these were delicious and great for breakfast. Didn't put any frosting on them and better the next day. I put them in cupcake papers and they did stick so I would recommend following the recipe and spray the pans and pour batter right into tins. Even my husband likes them and that's one of the best recommendations you can get!

I love this recipe, make it often. I would like to know the calorie count of each muffin. Also, I add nuts, raisins, dried cranberries, flaxseed meal(in place of 1/4 cup of the flour).This gives more nutrition and variety.

i make these in the summer with my home grown zucchini. keep them in the fridge though and not on the counter, they tend to get "funny" after a few days.
