Instructions:

*Step 1: Preheat the Oven*
Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a standard muffin tin with paper liners or grease each cup with non-stick spray.

*Step 2: Mix Dry Ingredients*
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, dried thyme, dried oregano, and paprika until well combined.

*Step 3: Prepare the Wet Ingredients*
In a separate bowl, whisk together the buttermilk (or milk + vinegar/lemon juice), vegetable oil, and the large egg until the mixture is smooth.

*Step 4: Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients*
Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients. Stir gently until just combined, being careful not to overmix. A few lumps are okay; this ensures a tender muffin texture.

*Step 5: Fold in Zucchini and Cheese*
Gently fold in the grated zucchini and shredded cheddar cheese into the muffin batter until evenly distributed. The zucchini adds moisture and nutrients, while the cheese enhances the savory flavor.

*Step 6: Fill the Muffin Cups*
Using a spoon or an ice cream scoop, fill each muffin cup with the batter until they are about 2/3 full.

*Step 7: Bake to Perfection*
Place the muffin tin in the preheated oven and bake the muffins for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. The muffins should have a golden-brown top and a tender crumb.

*Step 8: Cool and Garnish*
Once out of the oven, allow the muffins to cool in the tin for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. If desired, sprinkle chopped fresh parsley on top for a pop of color and added freshness.
