Plant a zucchini and feed the world, the saying goes. Well my over exuberant self had to plant the WHOLE package of zucchini seeds because what if those pill bugs liked zucchini seeds and left me with none like my lettuce, like my beans? I didn't stop to consider that they might all grow. They might all turn into viable large, feed the world plants. And they did, but I couldn't dare throw them all out. What a waste! Well, not only are we 'feeding' the world with zucchini now but our whole family, at every meal and every dish. Time for some variety! Here are a few yummy looking zucchini recipes for your zucchini abundance.

Our yummy zucchini muffin recipe is perfect for those rather large, "missed you when I checked the garden yesterday" zucchini. These are the best chocolate muffins I've ever had!


  • 1 cup raw honey
  • 1/3 cup melted organic butter
  • 3/4 cup sourdough starter
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • ​1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup shredded zucchini
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/3 cup white wheat flour
  • ​1 cup dark chocolate chips


  1. Melt your butter over low heat and let cool.
  2. Mix your raw honey and sourdough starter. After butter is cooled add that to this mixture.
  3. Add your eggs and vanilla, give it a good mix.
  4. Next are the dry ingredients; flour, baking soda, cocoa powder, sea salt and blend in well until dry ingredients are incorporated. If its a little wet its ok to add more flour, the thickness of your sourdough starter will affect how much flour to put in. Your looking for a batter that isn't too wet and drips but one that is thick and not dry. The batter should fall in clumps off the spoon.
  5. Add your zucchini and blend well.
  6. Add chocolate chips if you have them and blend in. This recipe is great without them but chocolate chips make everything that much better!
  7. Bake muffins at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes, mini loaves for 35-45 minutes and full size loaves at 40-50 minutes. Using a tooth pick, poke the middle of the fastest part. If the tooth pick comes out clean they are done. Happy eating and don't forget the tea, we might suggest some Peppermint Patty with this.
