Yummy Zucchini Muffins . . .

Not sure if you've heard, but CGB hosts a CSA on Thursdays. Learn more here. And we also host a monthly Bamboo Spoon Award Contest , where CSA shareholders bake treats using our CSA ingredients. Then as other shareholders wander in to pick up their produce, they taste all the treats and vote for their favorite. The dish with the most votes wins the Bamboo Spoon!

On Thursday, Ivy Connelly baked insanely yummy Zucchini Muffins with Oat Graham Brown Sugar Toppings. It was so good, we wanted to share the recipe with all our CGB friends. Enjoy!
