Vegan Zucchini Walnut Muffins

Submitted by Jennifer Manriquez

These zucchini walnut muffins are made naturally sweet with the inclusion of bananas. So tasty, wouldn't it be great to grab a fiber rich breakfast that can be eaten out of hand? Muffins are great to make in the summer, since you can heat the kitchen once, and have 12  servings as a result. Take a tip from this cook, and make a batch of these late at night, cool to room temperature and then wrap individually. You can grab and go!
