These vegan zucchini muffins are light and fluffy and perfect for a weekend breakfast! Spread some vegan buttery spread on a fresh muffin and enjoy!
This summer was the first time we ever had a serious vegetable garden. And by serious, I guess I mean that we were serious about not letting it get taken over by weeds. We only planted tomatoes (cherry, heirloom, roma and beefsteak), tomatillos, peppers and zucchini. The tomatoes are still going strong, but everything else is done. However, I had two HUGE zucchinis sitting on my counter all last week, and I knew that something had to be done with them.
I wound up making a couple different kind of muffins on Friday. This vegan zucchini muffin recipe has a traditional zucchini bread flavor, and is light and tender.
The zucchini and the applesauce keep these muffins very moist, even over a few days. Of course, they’re so good, they usually don’t last very long! I’ve made them twice now, and this is a new favorite breakfast muffin in our house.
Do I have to peel the zucchini before shredding it?
No, just rinse the zucchini, then shred it. The peel is fine to stay on for this recipe!
These vegan zucchini muffins are:
- lightly spiced
- delicious when warm and topped with vegan buttery spread
- perfect for a brunch or luncheon
