Zucchini Granola Muffins

I never thought I'd say this but...I'm so over the summer heat. I'm so ready for crisp, clean, rainy, blustery, snuggle up with a piping hot bowl of soup or a cup of hot cocoa with mini marshmallows time of year. I'm ready to break out my Snuggie! Who's with me?
Autumn always puts me in a muffin mood as well. I hope you aren't zucchini-ed out quite yet because these muffins are fantastic! They are so moist, hearty and delicious...perfect for a quick breakfast or afternoon snack. The addition of the granola really makes these muffins sing!

Give these a try soon!

Print recipe

1 cup granola
1 cup milk
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1 large egg

In another small bowl combine the flour, sugars, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and ginger. In a medium bowl whisk together the egg, oil and vanilla. Stir in the zucchini and granola/milk mixture. Stir in the dry ingredients just until combined.

Fill muffins cups 3/4 full.

Bake at 375 degrees for 16-18 minutes.

I also wanted to say a big Thank-You to all of my bloggy friends who wished me well during my time away. A lot of big changes have come my way and I'm still adjusting. It feels good to be back to blogging. I plan on hopping over your way for a visit soon.
