Whole-Wheat Zucchini Muffins

I made these muffins quite some time ago, and never finished logging the recipe. When I wanted to make them again today, I could not find the recipe. Fortunately, I found this blog post I had started in 2014, along with a picture of the finished product!

If you are familiar with my cooking and baking methods, you know that I often use recipes as ideas, and create with ingredients I have on hand. Therefore, there are two recipe variations in this post. The first one, is the simpler version from 2014, and the second recipe goes with the 2016 muffin photo.


Ingredients - 12 muffins

1 cup shredded zucchini squash, squeezed dry - I always shred the squash first, and then place it in a colander to drain until needed
2 eggs
