These muffins may not have a sweet streusel topping or pink glaze, but they are just as delicious and even more wholesome than those other muffins. These vegan zucchini muffins are meant to be low in sugar and loaded in good for you nutrients like Omega 3s from the ground flax seeds and walnuts.
These vegan zucchini muffins are great to have on hand for an easy healthy snack to grab on your way out the door. (I’m thinking they’d be great for back to school!) I keep a stash in my freezer and toast one as I change before heading out to a workout class after work. They are also great for grabbing on busy mornings. I’ll just pair it with a banana and a cup of yogurt and I’m good to go!
I am on a big dried apricot kick at the moment (check out these cookies!), so I decided to use them in these tasty muffins. However, feel free to substitute them with another dried fruit or berry you may have on hand at home. I’m thinking blueberries would be delicious in these vegan zucchini muffins!
