To me there is nothing better than disguising vegetables into a delicious treat to make me feel a little less guilty. This cupcake recipe is one of my favorites and it's so easy to make, I hope that you enjoy it as much as I do.

All You Need To Do
Preheat oven to 350° F.
Prepare your zucchini. In a fine mesh cloth, squeeze as much liquid out of your zucchini as much as possible.
In a large bowl, add your lightly beaten eggs, sugar vegetable oil, vanilla extract and lemon juice. Mix it until combined on low speed.
Fold in your zucchini to the mix.
Increase the speed of your mixer to medium and slowly add your flour to the mix.

Stop the mixer and gently fold in your blueberries and sprinkles.
Spoon the batter into lightly greased cupcake tins or you can use cupcake liners, and fill ¾ of the cup up.
