I have made a ton of zucchini bread and muffins with different variations and have finally found THE BEST EVER! I have made this twice this week already and have requests for more. This recipe is perfect consistency, flavor and balance of spice with sweet. Of course you can always substitute things such as sugar, oil and spices but as this one is it really is perfect! This year I was blessed to use zucchini from my garden and it was amazing! I added an apple to the mix and I can’t begin to tell you how good these are! I made some with walnuts and some with chocolate chips to have variety and none of them were disappointing! So on to the recipe and I can’t wait for you to try it!
