An easy and delicious way to use the bounty of zucchini in your garden is to make these yummy Zucchini Puffs.


  1. 3/4 cup flour
  2. 3/4 tsp. baking powder
  3. 2 tsp. Italian Seasoning
  4. 3/4 cup milk
  5. 1 egg
  6. 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  7. 1 cup grated zucchini


For the Zucchini

  1. After you grate the zucchini, you'll need to get rid of the excess water.
  2. Wrap the zucchini in a clean kitchen towel and squeeze the excess water out.
  3. Make sure you're holding the towel over the sink or a large enough bowl to catch all the water. You don't want a mess.

How to Prepare the Puffs

  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and Italian Seasoning.
  2. In another bowl, combine the egg with the milk. Then add to the dry ingredients and combine.
  3. Add the shredded zucchini and cheese to the batter and mix to combine.
  4. Spoon into mini muffin pans that have been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. 
  5. Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 20 minutes or until the center is done.


  1. Please feel free to add your own favorite seasonings, garlic powder would be nice! I love when people take a recipe and add their own spin on it!
  2. You can also add salt and pepper to the mixture before spooning into the muffin pan.
