I made these muffins with the leftover zucchini pulp from the basil and ricotta stuffed zucchini recipe. They turned out fluffy, moist and packed with yumminess.

For the herbs, I used fresh basil instead of dried, which gave every bite some herby aroma. I used more whole wheat flour and less all-purpose flour to give these muffins more nutritious values.

Had a few warm muffins right after they were out of the oven, another two for breakfast earlier today, and after finishing the review, will go to grap another 1 or two for my snack.

Another awesome recipe to make zucchini into something delicious :-)
