Zucchini Muffins

Zucchini-Yogurt Muffins

There’s so much zucchini growing in the garden, time to make some healthy zucchini muffins. I used 2 zucchini and 1 yellow patty pan squash. You can substitute any kind os squash. Consider using different color squashes for a beautiful muffin. These muffins are light and fluffy. I use a food processor to grate the zucchini, but it can also be grated by hand with a box grater.
