Healthy Zucchini Muffins (2015:12)

I've been unable to find a good zucchini bread/muffin recipe.  And considering there's a cute lunch place that I frequent that has excellent zucchini muffins....  Well, I feel like they're taunting me with their deliciousness that I'm unable to duplicate.  Ugh!

A recipe for Healthy Zucchini Muffins popped up on Gimme Some Oven recently - and I love that blog!  I decided I needed to try these, ASAP.

I made a few changes to the recipe....  With only maple syrup to sweeten the muffins, I knew that just wouldn't be enough sweet for my taste buds.  So, I subbed some sugar for the syrup.  Instead of an egg, I used egg substitute and instead of nasty coconut oil, canola.  I also squeezed the liquid from the zucchini - having not done that in a previous attempt with another recipe, I knew I should.

These turned out fluffly and yummy!  They're still not very sweet, even with the sugar.  I may add a tiny bit more next time.  And they freeze very well.  This is a keeper!
