Recipe For Banana Cranberry Zucchini Muffins

Healthy Dessert: Banana Cranberry Zucchini Muffins

Holy zucchinis! I wanted to plant two different kinds in my garden, and since the seedlings came in packs of four, my eight plants are bursting with gorgeous green veggies. I've grilled it, stuffed it with quinoa, made Creamy Zucchini Boats, and pan-fried Zucchini Latkes, but this weekend I was in the mood for something sweet. I thought, why not combine two of my favorite bread recipes — zucchini and banana. The combination is more amazing than I thought it would be.
