BAKE ME: Vegan Blueberry Banana Zucchini Muffins

Ever since the great success of my Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread I have been looking for more ways to mix zucchini into my baking. As you know, banana muffins and banana bread are a staple in my house. Rarely a week goes by without me making them.  This past week, I decided to do a twist on my classic. Who says you can’t combine bananas, blueberries and zucchini?! The combination makes the best blueberry banana zucchini muffins! And this time they are truly vegan!
