I brought these into work to celebrate a friend’s birthday and another’s last day before maternity leave. Josilin said to me, “mom you’re so lucky to work somewhere you can bring food to everyone.” It struck me how these are the moments that shape her idea of employment and what might make a positive workplace in the future. Truth be told, I’d rather be home with the munchkins all day and bake for their pleasure, but that’s just not in the cards for me at this stage. In the meantime, I like to see Josilin dreaming of taking cookies into her workplace someday too.
The muffins are super moist and full of coconut flavour. I’m not sure the glaze is necessary, unless you’re celebrating a special occasion or feeding a bunch of kids. The sunflower seeds give a nice crunch to each bite and add a bit of protein too. The original recipe suggested using paper towel to drain the zucchini. This was not a technique I had employed before and was surprised with the success of it. It kept the muffin from being a soggy mess and was a quick step. Hope you’re “lucky” enough to work somewhere that you can make these and bring them in to your coworkers.
