SO yummy! Garden Muffins with Zucchini and Strawberries
Summer is lasting this year, my garden is happy with plenty of zucchinis, peppers of all kinds, eggplants and strawberries! on't know about this second harvest of strawberries, but I am taking full advantage of it.
Every Sunday, I like to bake a batch of muffins for the boys, well, they are men, but still my boys, my husband included. I have mostly stopped using recipes because I am forever honing my baking skills. But I did jot down how I made these because they were chock full of good stuff. Yes, I do have sugar and flour, (I use unbleached only), but I do want the guys to eat the muffins!
This recipe is really easy and very much worth it. Make it, like it and share it!
½ c. butter, softened
¾ c. sugar
1 c. shredded yellow zucchini (green will do also!)
2 bananas (mashed)
1 c. strawberries, sliced (I am sure other berries would do also!)
2 c. flour
¾ c. rolled oats
1 tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. baking soda
½ c. milk
