Banana Zucchini Bread Muffins

Rated as 4.52 out of 5 Stars

"This recipe is from my mother-in-law and it's the only way to get my husband to eat bananas and my kids to eat zucchini. I make them into muffins because they get eaten faster than the bread. But it's great either way."

These turned out really good. My daughter who is a picky eater loves them. I cut the white sugar by 3/4 cup and it was still sweet enough for us.

I live in high altitude. I should have added more flour and cooked longer. I will give them another try.

I doubled it! I didn't have brown sugar so I used 1c white sugar and 4tablespoons honey. I used 1c less white sugar and used 1/4 c honey instead and they were great! I also added dried cherries ...

I also followed other reviewers and added less sugar (1/2 cup) as well as made my own applesauce. I added Ground Flaxseed to give it a more nutritional boost. My husband is not into sweets but ...
