Junk Muffins

After Bob and I had dinner at Pizzeria 712, I came home and surfed around their websites for their restaurants and their blog and I think this recipe was on their blog.  If you google Pizzeria 712, you can find their websites and blogs.  I’ve been dying to try this recipe because I had the last few zucchini from our garden sitting on the counter and some perfect banana bread bananas in the freezer but just haven’t had a spare moment to make them until today.  For those of you who subscribe to my blog, buckle up because today and tomorrow there will be lots of new recipes posted for Thanksgiving!  Enjoy and Happy Turkey Day!

3 eggs

2 sticks butter, softened

2/3 cup packed brown sugar

1 cup sugar

2 cups grated zucchini (I run mine through the food processor until it is almost liquid)

3 bananas, mashed

2 teaspoons vanilla

3 1/2 cups flour

1 tablespoon cinnamon

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

1 cup chocolate chips (I added an additional 1/2 cup, of course!)

1/2 cup sliced toasted almonds (Toasting nuts is super easy, just put in microwave in microwave safe bowl and cook on high at 30 second to 1 minutes intervals, stirring after each.  You’ll be able to tell when they are done because they start to brown slightly and become very fragrant.  I think this 1/2 cup of almonds took just under 3 minutes to toast.)

Bake at 325 for 18 minutes.

That’s all there is to their recipe so here’s what I did:  beat eggs first then add all remaining ingredients one by one in order listed, mixing well after each addition.  Add flour about a cup at a time.  Stir in chocolate chips and almonds by hand.

Makes 3 dozen.
