Zucchini Muffins

You know when it's about time to get this recipe active. For me, it's the time of year when all your zucchini from the garden are ready at once. All of a sudden, you're on zucchini overload. You are sick of frying it, sautéing it, and roasting it. Too much zucchini bread for one to handle, fret not, this lovely little recipe puts good use to your abundance of produce. The crumble top gives it a special flair and seems to attract young and old to devouring this pint size muffin. Enjoy
