These bite-sized Zucchini Bread Mini Muffins are packed full of fresh summer zucchini. Perfect for breakfast on the go, or a quick mid-morning snack!
Hey friends! How’s your weekend going? It’s hot, hot, hot here so yesterday we escaped up into the mountains where it was about 25 degrees cooler. We went up to Sierra National Forest to one of our favorite 9-ish mile hikes, the Dinky Lakes Trail. We’ve done this hike a few times before, but it’s just as pretty every time. With the terrible drought California is experiencing, it was encouraging to see so much water up there! The lakes were actually more full than they have been when we’ve gone in past years.
Since it’s summer and all, I’m sure all of you have lots of zucchinis hanging around. Whether they’re a garden harvest, a farm stand find, or just really good looking in-season grocery store varieties. Summer is all about these tasty green gems.
If you’re sick of eating your veggies, it’s time for something sweet. Zucchini bread!
