Low-FODMAP Spiced Zucchini Muffins

It's zucchini season and my, do we have zucchini. Not from our garden, mind you. We don't have a garden because I have the blackest thumb ever. No, these zucchinis come from husband's co-worker. Last week my husband brought home the biggest zucchini I have ever seen. It is about fifteen inches long and four inches in diameter. It barely fits in our fridge. Needless to say, I have been cooking and baking a lot with zucchini lately.

Believe it or not, I had never baked with zucchini before developing this recipe. I've always known that it adds moisture to muffins and breads with a mostly neutral flavor. It's also a great way to sneak some veggies into your diet. I decided to try my hand at some muffins. It took a few (OK, maybe six or seven) batches to get the recipe just right. So I present to you my perfected zucchini muffins today. I'm working on some more zucchini recipes as we speak, so stay tuned for those in the coming weeks. I hope you enjoy!
