    Your muffins look absolutely delicious, I can't wait to try them out! :)
    But before I do that, I need you to answer me a couple of questions 😉
    How many muffins does your recipe make? Are the muffins really soft? How long do they stay soft? Thank you very much for your answers! :)

      Depending on the size of your muffin pan it should make 18-24 muffins. They are soft and they stay moist – the banana and zucchini help them retain the moisture and they actually get moister as time goes by. I like to freeze half of them if I make them when its just two of us, but this is a recipe that I am well know for taking to work to share :) Hope you will enjoy!
