I love to make these using a mini muffin pan. My toddler can choose whether to eat one or three without a lot of waste! They’re also great for sharing at playgroup or other events. For the zucchini, you can use a hand grater, or save yourself some time and use a food processor to quickly chop it up for you. As busy moms, time is always a precious commodity! Older toddlers or preschoolers can even help mix up the batter themselves.

If you and your kids love these muffins please give it a 5 star rating and share on Pinterest!
