"We made this recipe a bit healthier...a delicious breakfast treat! I used freshly ground whole wheat instead of white flour, cut the sugar down to 1/2 cup, used 2 teaspoons of cinnamon (kept nutmeg at..." See more 1 tsp), upped the salt to 1 tsp (but used yummy sea salt), used cold butter in place of shortening, used 1/2 cup plain yogurt as we didn't have sour milk on hand, used 2 cups zucchini, and a whole cup of the walnuts. I could not even stir the batter, it was so thick, and so added a splash of milk -- worked like a charm. These muffins were not light and fluffy as others attested to, no doubt because of the whole wheat, butter, and extra nuts. They were hearty, tasty, and very satisfying. We will make these often!"
"With just a few changes/additions, these are my family's favorite breakfast on the go! I substitute 1 C whole wheat flour and 1/2 shredded apple and one shredded carrot for 1/2 C of the zucchini. I a..." See morelso heap the t of cinnamon and have switched to pumkin pie spice (as I was out of nutmeg). It adds a little zing and they are super moist! IQF them on a cookie sheet for about 10 minutes after they are completely cooled and then throw them in a Ziploc for easy storage. When someone wants one, zap it at 50% power for 30 sec and full power for 15. It's just like they were straight out of the oven! Thanks for this one!"
