Welcome to Muffin Monday.......
Muffin Monday 

 #MuffinMonday is a group of muffin loving bakers who get together once a month to bake muffins. You can see all of our lovely muffins by following our Pinterest board. Updated links for all of our past events and more information about Muffin Monday can be found on our home page.

Savory Zucchini Muffins

These muffins reminded me more of biscuits but they are made using the muffin method and they were the perfect side to my Slow Cooker Chicken Chili that I shared with you Saturday.

As you can see, the batter for these muffins is very stiff.  More like a dough than a batter.  Since the only rule to Muffin Monday is that the dry ingredients be combined, the wet ingredients be combined and then you combine the two of them, these are muffins even though the texture is more like biscuits.

Unlike bicuits though, there is no cutting in of butter or other fats and there is no rolling out of the dough and cutting.  So in that sense, they are much more muffins than biscuits.  Whatever you decide to call them....I call them tasty!!!  They are the perfect bread to serve along with your fall soups and stews.

  1. Cheese makes everything better, especially zucchini! I would love one of your muffins and a bowl of that chili, please!

  2. These sound like a fantastic addition to any fall soups, stews, and chilis - love those flecks of color in there!

  3. They're muffins to me! They sound wonderful.

  4. These sound so good with soup. I'm throwing some leftovers in a soup for tonight's dinner. These would be a great accompaniment. Thanks!
