Weight Watchers Zucchini Muffins Are Easy to Make and Delicious
These muffins were absolute heaven!
They’re hearty and totally hit the spot when you’re hungry for a good solid breakfast.
Weight Watchers Zucchini Muffins are the perfect recipe to bake on a Sunday morning so that you can save the leftovers for busy weekday mornings.
Or, if you want them hot and fresh out of the oven, prepare in advance by choping the onions and zucchini the night before and store them in the refrigerator.
Then the morning you make the muffins, just mix in the remaining ingredients and bake.
The egg, cheese, and onion are the strongest flavors in these bite-size, well more like 2 or 3 bite size, mini quiches.
They were the perfect combination!
Use Fresh Basil and Reduce the Salt
One tip I have is to not tweak the recipe like I did and use dried basil.
Unfortunately, when I bit into the muffins, I could barely taste the dried basil that I used as a substitute.
Using fresh basil is key to getting the optimal fresh taste in your muffins.
Also, be careful with the salt.
The recipe calls for kosher salt.
I didn’t have kosher salt, so I used table salt.
However, 1 teaspoon of table salt was a little bit too much.
Next time I will reduce it to 3/4 teaspoon of table salt.
These Weight Watchers Zucchini Quiche Muffins were a hit with my husband.
He absolutely loved them!
Whatever we had leftover, I stored in the refrigerator and just heated a few up throughout the rest of the week for breakfast.
You can also store your leftover muffins in a muffin/cupcake keeper like this Snapware 2 Layer Cupcake Keeper.
So who says muffins just have to be for bread?
Quiche is SO good in muffin form!
AND, they’re great for when you want to stay in control of your portion sizes.
