Mini Banana Zucchini Muffins

My daughter has used this recipe for a few years now to get her sons to get their "sweet" tooth satisfied, without giving in to requests for the really bad stuff! These have gone to day care, parties, etc. and they get to think they are getting something good. Now that Carter is 6, he has caught on! LOL But Aidan still considers them big time "cupcakes" and loves them right out of the freezer! Go figure! I made these for our granddaughter in Atlanta and she loved them too. The amazing thing about these is that they use no eggs! If you are looking for a great treat for a kid's party or afternoon snacks, these are great! It is also one more recipe to use when you have a bumper crop of zucchini!
Have a Happy 4th of July everyone!

Mini Banana Zucchini Muffins
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1-1/2 cups mashed banana
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup white flour
1 cup wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup whole milk with a splash of vinegar
1/2 small zucchini, grated (I used a microplane grater for this step)

Mix all ingredients together and bake in mini muffin tins sprayed with PAM at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes. Cool a couple minutes and turn out from pan. These freeze well.
This will make about 48 mini muffins.


  1. Kids catch on fast, don't they! These look so good- love the idea of banana and zucchini together!

  2. These are a wonderful treat for the children. I'll bet they stay moist with that banaba-zucchini combo. Have a wonderful weekend.

  3. Yum.....And I am using my mini muffin tin a lot more these days as the guys are watching the carbs and cutting down to that mini bite of goodness.

  4. Banana and zucchini~!what an intriguing combination. I like it!

  5. I think zucchinis will be coming around soon from all my friends with gardens, this recipe will come in handy!

  6. I have so much zucchini growing right now. I have just got to try your muffins! They look terrific!
