Zucchini Muffins

When making zucchini muffins, I always have a heavy hand on the cinnamon. There’s something about a warm cinnamon muffin that just feels cozy, especially on a cold night. I try to take it easy on so much sugar since the kids have these for breakfast and snacks at night.

You can also add walnuts or chocolate chips to these muffins if you want something to add to this.
