    I’ve always loved the idea of zucchini muffins but have never made them. These look great!! Perfect for a road trip. :-)

      Hi Nicole, thanks for stopping by! If you like zucchini bread, you’ll like these muffins/cupcakes too. Perfect for a road trip indeed….but minus the frosting cuz it gets too messy :)

    I just made these with my sister and we ate the whole batch! We added orange zest to the batter and orange juice to the icing for extra flavor and they were fab!

      What a great addition — orange zest! Thanks so much for sharing, Francie! I’m glad you and your sister enjoyed them :)

    Hi Lacey … I was curious if I could substitute Agave Nectar for the brown sugar and confectioners’ sugar?
    Also, how do you think the frosting would turn out if I used a non-dairy cream cheese…?

    Love to know your thoughts,
    Dairy & refined sugar-free Robin :)

      Hi Robin! Very good questions! Unfortunately, I am not an expert with substituting those specific ingredients in my recipes. I think it would definitely be tricky, but mostly possible, to substitute all those ingredients, though I don’t know at what proportions. I would think the confectioners sugar would be tricky to substitute, as it is what makes the frosting harden. I wish I could be of more assistance, but I’d love to know if you try it out and how it goes! Good luck!

    I would like to thank you for posting such a delicious and wonderful recipe! I have been hunting for the “perfect” zucchini cupcake recipe, where I definitely found it here.

    Thank you so much once again!
