Place an oven rack in the middle of the oven. Preheat oven to 350 ̊F. Spray muffin pan (12 muffin cups total) with nonstick cooking spray and set aside. In a large bowl, stir together eggs, applesauce, granulated sugar, and vanilla extract. In a separate bowl, stir together flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves.
Stir flour mixture into egg mixture until just barely blended (there may be a few small lumps). Gently stir in zucchinis, raisins, and nuts. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups. Bake 20 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean. Remove muffin pans from oven and let muffins stand for 5 minutes.
