It’s that time of year again! Homegrown gardens are producing more zucchinis than thought possible and we’re all stuck with a plethora of vegetables we don’t want to go to waste. Not a bad problem to have, in my opinion. Muffins are a deliciously easy way to put those zucchini to work.
I am a vegetarian, but recently dabbled in a vegan diet for a couple weeks. Eating vegan is actually not as hard as many people think! I found that when I stuck to simple recipes that had ingredients I usually keep in my pantry, I was much more likely to stick to the diet.
This list of 12 amazing vegan zucchini muffins has a mix of recipes that require both “normal” ingredients and “uncommon” ingredients. Either way you go, you’re sure to have some delectable muffins at the end!
