Zucchini and Walnut Muffins

I needed to make an after school snack and after looking through the refrigerator, I decided to make zucchini muffins so I could use up the last bit of zucchini I had. I wanted to make the muffins a bit healthy so I used mostly whole wheat flour and I used canola oil instead of butter. This was a really fun and easy project to do with my son and he had so much fun mixing all the ingredients together. The muffins turned out moist and delicious – the perfect after school snack. Both of my kids gobbled them up and asked for seconds. They also made terrific breakfast muffins the following morning.

Spoon the mixture into the the prepared muffin tray.
