Starbucks Zucchini Walnut Mini Muffin
Hey, Starbucks? Um, we still like you and all, but your so-called "mini muffin" appears to be a normal-sized muffin with some pretty sad stats. Frankly, it's a good thing it's not any bigger -- it's already got almost 400 calories and a whopping 24g fat! That's more fat than the full-sized Blueberry Muffin at The 'Bucks, which is more than ANYONE should be consuming from a breakfast item. Sheesh! In fact, you could eat a third of a pint of Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia ice cream and STILL not reach the amount of fat and calories in this "little" muffin. (But don't get any crazy "ice cream for breakfast" ideas!) How does a simple breakfast bread, made from (HELLO!) vegetables, spiral so out of control? We say it's LAZINESS, 'cuz it's soooo easy to make guilt-free zucchini nut muffins without compromising the taste in any way. It just requires a little creative thinking... or our awesome recipe! Make a batch of our Fluffy-Good Zucchini Nut Muffins, and you'll never look at baked goods in a glass display case quite the same way again.
