Zucchini Bread

So I’ve been trying to figure out what to do with the muffin mixes. I decided to try playing around with trying to create a cookie with them, and cook them in the microwave. I found out that if you cook the muffin batter in the microwave, they form nice, moist, soft cakey cookies. Yum! Continue reading
