Muffins are a favorite at my house. They're fast and easy to make too! The basis for this recipe came from the 'Eat Clean Diet'. Changes were made because of things I had on hand at the time. The zucchini was a great way to add veggies and fiber. Make a batch or 2 and freeze them for mornings you're in a hurry or just need a snack! Sometimes I'll warm one up in the microwave and drizzle a little agave nectar over it! Yum!

These muffins smelled wonderful but tasted bland. I don't know whether the recipe omitted salt by accident or on purpose but I think it could benefit by the addition of at least 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Note also that the original recipe actually makes 2 dozen muffins not 1. Read More

I substituted unsweetened apple sauce for the oil and used sugar because I had no agave. Also added 1/2 tsp salt a small dash of vanilla and a dash of cinnamon. Came out great. Read More

These muffins turned out great! I added 1/2 tsp of salt and walnuts to the recipe. The recipe made 18 medium muffins for me and I baked them for 23 minutes at 375. They were nice and moist and delicious! Read More

Just took them out of the oven. Delicious. I only used a little over 1 cup sugar and used 1 cup applesauce instead of oil. Also put in some chopped pecans and raisins. Read More

I took the adevice of other reviewers and added 1/4 teaspoon of salt 1 teaspoon of vanilla and plenty of cinnamon ginger clove allspice and touch of nutmeg. I'm diabetic and prepping meals for postpartum. I made these even more lactation friendly by adding 1/2 cup of whole flax seeds. I substituted truvia brown sugar (6 tablespons) baking mix for the agave. I swapped 1/4 cup of steel cut oats for 1/4 cup of old fashioned oats. I reduced raisins to half cup. In half of the batch I added semi sweet mini chocolate chips (also good for lactation) I swapped out the oil with 1/2 of unsweetened apple sauce. I made 2 trays of mini muffins and a dozen standard size muffins with this recipe. Mini muffins turned out well. I only baked them for 18 minutes. This is not very sweet but very flavourful!
