Steve, my farmer friend, has kept me well supplied with zucchini. I was looking to make an original muffin recipe to thank him that would knock his socks off.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Prepare 12 muffin cups with liners.
  2. Mix 6 tablespoons flour and brown sugar together in a bowl; cut butter into the flour mixture until you have pea-sized crumbs.
  3. Beat margarine and white sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Beat egg and vanilla into the butter mixture.
  4. Mix 1 1/2 cups flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a separate bowl; gradually beat into the butter mixture. Fold zucchini, cranberries, and walnuts into the mixture; spoon into prepared muffin cups, filling nearly to the top. Sprinkle topping mixture onto the batter.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 25 minutes.

These muffins are INCREDIBLE! I didn't have any nuts and I used dried cranberries. I also added one and a half tsp. of apple pie spice. one tsp. would have done the job. these muffins are very moist which almost puts them on the rich scale. YUM, oh and the streusel topping? THE BOMB! thanks so much shorecook for sharing your wonderful recipe :)

Loved them! I just added some nutmeg and cinnamon but they were wonderful. Gave one to my daughters 10 year old friend and she loved them and had no clue they had veggies in them :) Thank you so much

Very Yummy!!!!! made it a bit healthier with unsalted butter(instead of margarine). Also, used 1 cup of mashed banana(instead of sugar) + 2packets of Stevia. And added 1/2tsp. Cinnamon and 1/4 tsp. Nutmeg. Moist and delicious!!!!
