If you grow your own cucumbers you know that even just one plant can give you a big harvest! What can you do with them? My kids absolutely adore cucumber muffins!
They look forward to them all year and enjoy helping to fill the freezer with them as we bring in the cucumber harvest. If you are looking for something besides pickles to use up your cucumbers give these cucumber muffins a try!
How to Make Cucumber Muffins
To make the muffins you will need:
2 cups pureed cucumber- peel cucumbers and remove seeds before pureeing in a blender or food processor.
3/4 cup oil (olive or coconut)
1/4 tsp vanilla
1 cup (or less) sugar
3 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ginger
Preheat your oven to 350*.
Mix the cucumber,eggs, oil, vanilla, and sugar in a large bowl. Stir to combine.
Add the remaining ingredients all at once and mix until fully combined and no more flour is seen.
Fill muffin tins 3/4 way full or loaf pans 1/2 way full.
