There is a saying that ‘what grows together, goes together’ and this unlikely combination of blueberries and zucchinis is a testament to how true that statement is, especially when they are combined in a rustic cornbread muffin. Using only honey as a sweetener, this is a snack you’ll feel good about serving to your kids this season.
