  • Cook's Notes:
  • I use a ice cream scoop to make all the muffins even amounts.
  • I sprinkled autumn colored sugar on top for color and a slight texture.

Loved it! Its an awesome twist on zucchinni bread! The apples and cinnamon really did the trick. This is a tasty and healthy subsitution for cupcake at family gatherings, office treats, and after dinner desserts! Thanks so much for the recipe!! Two thumbs up! P.s. For those who enjoy sugary snacks, this is probably not for you. Its mildly sweet and like i stated, much healthier for you :)

I like the taste, but I was hoping for them to be more like a banana cupcake, but they turned out very dense. Hardly any air in them.

I cut this recipe in half using two eggs, one apple and one zucchini. The result was a dozen very moist, tasty muffins. Next time, I think the addition of some walnuts and some extra spice would be nice. Thanks for the easy, tasty recipe, justsmurfy!

My 3-year-old and I liked these. I cut the recipe in half (3/4 a large zucchini, 1 small apple, 2 eggs, 1/2 C sugar, etc), which only made 9 muffins (filled the papers most of the way.) They were not quite finished baking at 25 minutes. We both said they taste good, and they're soft and moist. They need to cool fully before eating so they won't stick to the muffin papers. I agree that adding chopped walnuts would make them better.

Delicious! A little like a fairly dense apple cake. Mine got sticky on top, but probably because I had to transport them with a lid before they cooled completely. I can't wait 'til the second batch gets out of the oven!

This is an awesome recipe!! Even my super picky 3 year old son ate these! I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out very yummy and really moist.

Nutritionally dense muffins. My husband loves these. Packed with good things to help him power through his morning.

This recipe is delicious. I subbed wheat flour for white and yellow summer squash for zucchini. My kids loved them! I did cook them a little longer than called for and sprinkled the top with raw sugar.
