Whole Wheat Zucchini Oat Muffins

While these muffins are a tiny bit sweet they are not your typical zucchini muffin. These muffins are more on the savory side of the world. The lack of sugar really helps the flavors of the featured ingredinets shine through. The addition of nuts would really add a nice crunch and texture to these muffins.

Quick and easy to prepare and a delight for the whole family. Try these delicious muffins today!

I have just been thinking of looking for savory muffins for dinner, and here you have already found one that looks and sounds so tempting. Thanks!!

*KATY* The streusel is what makes the muffin sweet so if you want a totally savory muffin just leave off the streusel. Enjoy, they are delicious.

I have been reading your blog for a little while now. Thanks for these great recipes! I made these muffins tonight so we would have them in the morning before work and daycare. I tasted the batter and wasn't sure if everyone would like them since they aren't too sweet, but yum! I love the streusel and am positive they will be a big hit at the Brown house. Thanks again.
