Around this time of year, zucchinis start hitting the stores in full force. You may have even grown some in your backyard and now you have a ridiculous amount! If you're like me, there is only so much roasted zucchini, zucchini stir fry, and zoodles you can eat, so why not bake with the rest? Carrot zucchini mini muffins are little gems that combine zucchini loaf and carrot cake into one tasty treat! These little muffins are so addicting, you're going to want to eat the whole batch! These muffins are spiced perfectly and packed full of flavor. They are so moist, so they keep well in a sealed container for a few days after baking... if they last that long!

    First I love the recipe but it is only 2 of us can i cut the recipe in half

    • You can for sure cut it in half! It’s a pretty forgiving recipe so cutting it in half won’t be a problem. Alternatively the muffins freeze very well - so you can make the whole batch then freeze some!
