We are on the road driving to a family reunion. I’m totally excited because I get to meet my brand new niece Alyssa. I am going to be in new baby heaven!
My husband was able to tether the internet on his phone to my laptop so I’d have internet access in the car. I have absolutely no idea how in the heck that works, but isn’t it cool!!
Recipe for Banana Zucchini Muffins
I am sharing a recipe that I came up with last year when we had LOTS of zucchini. My son was getting a little tired of all my zucchini baking and asked if I could just make regular muffins. I asked him what kind he would like. He wanted banana. Being the sneaky mom that I am, I still had to add some zucchini. I peeled it first, and not one of my kids could tell it was there. Zucchini banana muffins were born. I just made them again two days ago and they were just as good as I remembered. Very moist from the banana and peeled zucchini, and slightly tangy from the sour cream.They are a great way to sneak veggies into your diet! You can bake them into loaves if you prefer. Just as tasty. Hope you like them as much as we do. 🙂
This Banana Zucchini Bread is a delicious way to eat your vegetables!

  1. Just made the muffins! I doubled the recipe and substituted half the sour cream for greek yogurt. I added a total of 7 bananas and 1 tsp baking soda. The muffins are so light and fluffy it’s crazy! Will make again and again!
    Thanks!!

    • So glad to hear you liked them Lisa! We didn’t get much zucchini this year, so I didn’t get a chance to make them. Hopefully next season!
