Blucchini Muffins

Blucchini Muffins from ZestuousBlueberry Zucchini mini muffins made with Greek yogurt.

Recently, a coworker told me that she has never eaten a zucchini. I’ve been trying to introduce her to new vegetables because she’s grown up only appreciating green beans, corn and potatoes.

She’s been able to explore asparagus with my Limoncello Asparagus Spears, and recently she tried spinach for the first time through my Zestuous Spinach Cups.

When I asked her about zucchini, she said she was turned off by it because it started with a Z. What? Great things start with a Z – hint, hint – ZESTUOUS!

So instead of making traditional zucchini bread for her, I added blueberries to the mix, so that the Z disappeared. She can now call it BLUcchini bread.

You can bake this as a loaf, regular muffins or mini muffins, just as you would traditional zucchini bread.
