This time, when I went to make my recipe of healthy zucchini bread muffins, I made all small mini muffins and it produced 3 dozen mini’s.  These only have to cook at 350 degrees for about 12 minutes instead of the 20 minutes it takes for the full sized muffins.

I make most of my muffins with the freshest product I can get my hands on.  When I go the store to get my zucchini, unless I get them from a garden, depending on the season, I look for 2- 1 1/2 inch diameter zucchini  This yields me the right amount of squash for this recipe.  I usually don’t even measure the outcome, I just shred them and use it, however much it is.

The other products I love to use are fresh ground spelt flour.  I have a flour mill, but I do know you can buy it pre-ground also.  Then I like to use Sucanat for the sweetener.  This is a dehydrated sugar cane juice.  It is dark and granular which tends to make everything you use it in a lot darker in color, but it also adds a deep richness to the flavor of what you use it in.  This sweetener really enhances the flavor of chocolate.  I love this product.  For those that are gluten intolerant you can use Coconut sugar and it works just about the same.
