Shopping List

The following ingredients will be needed to make these zucchini muffins. You will need flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, raisins, cinnamon, butter, zucchini, vanilla, sugar, and eggs.

Can You Use Frozen Zucchini

Yes, you can use frozen zucchini in this recipe. You will need to thaw the zucchini and then squeeze out some of the excess moisture before adding it to your muffin batter. I prefer to use fresh zucchini in my muffin recipes.

Information About Zucchini’s

I used grated zucchini for this recipe. The type of zucchini you use will vary in their moisture amount.

If you pick them from your garden they will probably have more moisture. If they are store-bought they may be drier and have less moisture.

How Long Does It Take To Bake

The zucchini muffins take about 20 minutes to cook at 400. Insert a toothpick in the middle of the muffin to see if it comes clean, then you know it is done.

Storing Instructions

The muffins can stay out at room temperature for a couple of days.

Refrigerator: Store in the refrigerator for up to seven days.

Freezer: To freeze the muffins you will want to make sure they are completely cooled down before freezing. After they are cooled down you can place them on a baking sheet and freeze them for 30-60 minutes. After that time remove them from the freezer, wrap them tightly, and place them in freezer-safe containers or freezer bags. Store in the freezer for up to two months.

You can also let the muffins cool down and then place them in freezer-safe bags without freezing them on the baking sheet first.

Directions

Step 1: Gather all the ingredients you need. Preheat the oven to 400. Then you will need to grater the zucchini. After you grater, the zucchini, set the shredded pieces aside to use later.

Step 2: Mix the dry ingredients. In a large bowl add the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, raisins, cinnamon, and brown sugar. Stir the ingredients together.

Step 3: Mix the wet ingredients. Add eggs, vanilla, and butter. Whisk the ingredients together.

Step 4: Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Stir the mixture together, but don’t overmix the batter.
