Recipe Notes

  • Use a small grater so that you don't really taste the texture of the zucchini.
  • If your zucchini is large remove the seeds and then grate.
  • To easily bring eggs to room temperature sit them in a bowl of warm, not hot, water for about 5 minutes.
  • If you don't have a sifter just use a fine mesh strainer.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Grate zucchini with a small grater (larger pieces aren't good in this recipe). Wrap grated zucchini in a paper towel or clean dish towel and press out the extra moisture and set aside.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, sift the flour, baking soda and powder, salt and cinnamon together.
  3. In another bowl, stir together the mashed bananas, sugar, eggs, vanilla and oil. Mix with a fork to combine.
  4. Add the dry ingredients in two or three batches and stir until just combined.
  5. Fold in the zucchini.
  6. Fill muffin cups lined with baking liners about 2/3 full with the batter. Bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven for about 22 to 26 minutes, or until golden and a toothpick comes out clean (a few crumbs are OK, because we don't want dry muffins!).
  7. Remove from the oven and cool.

So yummy! I just made a similar recipe recently, but in loaf format. The bananas helped make the zucchini loaf even more moist. Delicious, Jan Mostrom !
