I hope you are all enjoying your week. We’re half way through the month already and school is on the brain right now. The kiddos are loving back to school shopping and I’m loving the idea of a new school year. One of my very favorite things about the kids being in school, is having fun treats and snacks for them when they get home. I know that this is not on the top of most peoples “excited for” lists. But, it was something I always cherished from my mom and have loved carrying it on with my own littles. I love finding new things to make or bake for them, as they get home from a long day of school.
Which brings me to our awesome tried and true recipe for today. These Zucchini muffins were great! We decided to turn the bread recipe into a muffin recipe, which turned out to be a bit tricky. Luckily for you, that’s why we call these Tried and True. We work out the kinks, and provide you with a great recipe that’s sure to work! After some trial and error, my talented mom was able to perfect this bread recipe into a muffin recipe. We’re glad we did, because sometimes a muffin is just so darn good. And my kids are suckers for a muffin. What about yours? I think they’ll be a big hit. AND they have a hidden veggie in them, zucchini! Shhh… my kids don’t know yet.
