Zucchini Walnut Muffins

Zucchini Walnut Muffins
Starbucks Copycat Recipe

Makes 2 Dozen

3 eggs
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 3/4 cup sugar
2 cups grated zucchini (about 2-3 zucchini)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
3 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line muffin tin with paper cups or grease well.

In a large bowl, beat together eggs, oil, applesauce, sugar, and vanilla. Stir in zucchini. In a separate large bowl, combine flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and half of the nuts. Add wet mixture to dry mixture and gently stir just until combined. Do not overmix!

Fill muffin cups about 2/3 full and top with remaining nuts. Bake 20–25 minutes, or until tops are golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center of a muffin.


  1. I finally found a recipe! This was really good. I'll probably add a 1/4 cup of brown sugar to give it a little bit more sweetness, but this is the best one by far! Thanks so much for this post!

  2. Ohhhhhhhh this is soooo yummy!!!! I have been trying to find a Starbucks that has the zucchini bread, and they all look at me like I'm crazy now. Those whippersnappers! ;-) These muffins make me happy. Well, I made a cake and muffins with the rest that didn't fit

  3. These are seriously thee best muffins ever!! I have made these so many times over the last 2 years and I'm so hooked! My kids love them too! So thank you for this recipe! <3

  4. Oh, I am glad I found this recipe.... I don't understand why they discontinued it. Did anybody add more sugar as Nicole did?

  5. Like ebonynicole I found this one a bit LESS sweet than required. I also found it a little on the dry side. I changed the recipe:

    3/4 c. brown sugar - ADDED to the white sugar
    1-1/2 c. walnuts IN mix
    1/4 c. sliced almonds on top
    1 c. applesauce to make more moist

    Its better but it could still be a bit more moist -- thoughts cooks?

    1. kbs ebulldogs - did you find a way to make it a bit more moist?
