Lately there have been a lot of zucchini muffin recipes floating around on Pinterest and in the food blog world. Loving zucchini and seeing the potential for a really low points snack, I had to jump on the bandwagon and try to come up with my own. I wanted something a little different so I opted to build mine with shredded zucchini, feta cheese, and some fresh dill. If that’s not your style you could use Parmesan, Cheddar, Mozzerella, really any cheese you love paired up with any fresh herb. Goat cheese and chives would probably be delicious. I use Panko breadcrumbs but regular breadcrumbs would work as well I just only had Panko in the house.

I am planning to make these muffins today and have a question. Are these regular size muffins or are they bigger ones? They look delicious.

Thanks for all your wonderful recipes. The ones I have made are delicious!
