Golden Fruit and Vegetable Muffins image

Another delicious way to use the plentiful yellow crookneck squash from your summer garden! These moist muffins are reminiscent of a light fruitcake. They will keep several days in an airtight container. The recipe is from "Sweet and Savory Muffins" and was in a November 1985 issue of Bon Appetit magazine.

These muffins are a bit more dense than I expected, but they're still very good. I think they would be perfect for a packed lunch or a quick breakfast.

I made these muffins with a few different variations, like adding chocolate chips, nuts, and different fruits. They all turned out great!

I'm not a big fan of vegetables in baked goods, but these muffins were surprisingly good. The vegetables added a nice sweetness and texture.

I love that these muffins are made with whole wheat flour and honey instead of sugar. They're a much healthier option than other muffins.
