I am up to my eyeballs in cherries right now. Tony brings them home from work by the bucketful, so I’ve been trying to find ways to use them up. I decided to try using them in muffins, and I thought chocolate and cherries would go well together. And I figured why not throw a zucchini in there while I’m at it?
I happened to have some zucchini in our weekly delivery of local produce from Fresh2U.ca. I love waking up on Saturday morning to find a green box full of fresh vegetables and fruits waiting for me. It’s like Christmas morning…but with vegetables. Anyway, the zucchini was a perfect addition to these muffins. They were so moist and so delicious that we devoured the entire batch before the end of the day.
All three of the kids were happy with these muffins, but I only got photos of two of them. Bennett ran off somewhere to eat his muffin in peace. The boys couldn’t believe there was zucchini in them, because you really can’t tell at all.
What a fantastic way to use up the plethora of cherries in our house. If Tony brings home any more cherries, I totally know what I’m going to be making first!
