A delicious veggie muffin (kind of...)

Top Review by LARavenscroft

These were okay, but we thought they could have been a little sweeter. I think that next time I make them I would add a bit more sugar. This recipe makes 12 LARGE muffins, next time I will also make them into 18 so they are not so big. All in all, it was a good way to use up some zucchini other than making more zucchini bread. Also, they were easy to make gluten free using Bob's Red Mill AP Gluten Free Flour. Thanks Swirly!
