No mixer needed – these Zucchini Muffins are the best classic zucchini muffins. They are the perfect zucchini recipe for all of that garden bounty! Made in one bowl, muffins just don’t get easier than this!



  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 cups shredded, unpeeled zucchini*


  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Spray 12 muffin cups with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.  Add the eggs, oil and zucchini and stir just until combined. The batter will seem too dry at first, but will come together after stirring.
  3. Divide the batter between the 12 muffin cups, filling each about 3/4 full.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a tester inserted comes out clean, 20-24 minutes.  Let the muffins cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing from the pan.

Recipe Notes:

*If your zucchini is really large, you’ll want to scrape the seeds out. If it is normal sized, you can just grate the whole zucchini as is.
