zucchini_muffinsStill got some zucchini from last summer in the freezer? Or maybe you just want to bake something extra healthy after all those Christmas cookies, without giving up sweetness. If either is true, try this muffin recipe that features zucchini and carrots shredded into the batter. Walnuts give the muffins a little crunch, and cinnamon and cloves bring the flavor to life. This is a quick and easy from-scratch recipe to brighten a winter day. It comes to us from the Avenue Hotel Bed and Breakfast in Manitou Springs, Colorado, “voted the best bed and breakfast in the Colorado Springs metro area the past three years”.
