Zucchini & Pineapple Muffins

 

Bring on another week, I say…..Happy MONDAY, everyone!

Hope you all had relaxing…..fulfilling…..positive……energizing weekend and you are ready to embrace another fantastic week!

My weekend was amazing…..great time with family and friends….hanging in the kitchen with my kids……going on a date with my youngest…..throwing my sister the best surprise party….getting my yard ready for fall (please, come already)……getting meals ready for this week….

…..oh, yeah…..grounding my teenager for being mouthy & neglecting his chores and having him not talk to me for awhile as a result…..and why is this amazing, you ask?

…..because his silence means I am doing something right…..that’s why!

Anyway, part of my “preparing meals for the week” ritual is also baking muffins….loaves….breads…..for quick snacks and light meals.

So this week……muffin of the week is……ZUCCHINI & PINEAPPLE MUFFIN…….

    Hey Bibi! I usually use zucchini in citrus muffins with lemons and oranges. This sounds really good. :)

    I came home today with the passion of wanting to bake something.. The zucchini and pineapple muffins sound GREAT. I was always a huge fan of zucchini bread growing up.

    But, instead, I think I’m sticking with pumpkin bars ;0

    I love incorporating zucchini into breads/muffins but have never done so with pineapple (honestly I don’t bake with pineapple ever!)—- maybe it is something I should try!
