Summer Squash Muffins Recipe

The kids devoured these summer squash muffins, what a great recipe.

There’s all kinds of ways to make squash… this recipe is delicious

We only have one yellow squash plant and it’s really been producing! We are so thankful! From this one plant, we’ve been able to enjoy them sauteed, grilled, and fried. We’ve had squash casserole, summer squash pickles, and summer squash relish. Not all of the family enjoys this beautiful bounty, however, there are still more squash coming in.

Love at first bite of this Summer squash muffin.

Your kids will love this.

These summer squash muffins really made an impression with the kids- in a good way. In fact, all 15 muffins vanished between our own kids and the neighbor kids. They had no idea there was any hint of a vegetable in them and I overheard the muffins being called things like, “so good,” “amazing,” and “yummy.”  It was a great way to use up the squash too. Since the reviews were good, we’re working on a gluten-free alternative- especially since more squash are growing.
