Hey guys! Are you ready for the weekend?

Here in the UK is so hot now! ☀️☀️ Yesterday was the hottest April day for nearly 70 years. I think we skipped spring, we went from winter straight into summer. I'm so happy now! I was so tired of winter coats, no we had to swap them to summer dresses, right away. That's a good thing for me, because I don't have a decent spring jacket. I was looking for a pretty one for a while, but I haven't found the best one yet. :D

What are your plans for this weekend? We will definitely go out somewhere, but we haven't decided yet where to go and what to do. :)) For these trips I pack food from home, usually a sandwich, fruits and something for my sweet tooth. If I have time to bake some muffins, they are definitely coming with us, because they are easy to store and you can just grab out from your backpack and eat them instantly.

Here's my great muffin recipe you can make as a grab-and-go dessert for weekend hiking/trip/picnic, or you can easily bake them for breakfast, and they make an amazing afternoon treat as well. These moist banana muffins are made with whole wheat flour and have a hidden veggie inside. You'll love them!

  2. Shred the zucchini, then set aside in a colander.

For some reason I don't think I would ever think to mix banana and zucchini. Nice way to make them a bit healthier. They sound and look great.

I know it sounds weird, but trust me, they make such a delicious and healthy combination! :)

That looks yummy!:) you did great in framing the muffins.

Cheers!
