Crumbly Topped Zucchini Muffins

I was recently given several LARGE, homegrown, zucchinis.  So, we have been busy making all kinds of zucchini goodness.

These muffins are a great way to get in some zucchini, not that you are getting a lot, but you really wouldn’t know you were getting any.  The taste so good.  Especially with the crumbly topping.  Which, in my opinion, makes any muffin better.

I love quick breads, because they are easy to make- even my kids can make them.  In fact my kids did most of the work on these muffins.  They grated the zucchini, stirred everything together, and even sprinkled on the topping.  🙂

We love to eat muffins for breakfast, but any left-overs get snacked on all day.  My favorite way to eat these is while they are still warm, with some butter slathered inside.  Mmm.  Mmm.  Mmm.
