Zucchini, carrot, & raisin muffins

Jul 25, 2011 by

I’m still on my zucchini kick.  So I made these guys.  So freaking good!

I may have to make them again.  I sent most of them off with my wife for her work potluck, because I knew if I kept them at home I would eat them all.  I kept a few at home…and promptly ate them all.

My garden is finally starting to slow down on the zucchini kick, and I’ve been giving them away daily.

    I cannot stop making/eating these!! Thank you! I have made the original recipe, with zucchini only, and tonight with zucchini and chocolate chips. We get so much zucchini from our CSA and this is the best possible way to eat them I’ve decided.
