{gf} zucchini muffins


So these little beauties took 3 batches to perfect. The first: too wet. The second: too dry. The third: just right. Goldilocks and the three bears would be proud. If you like not-too-sweet muffins, these are for you. I'm loving them for breakfast. There has to be some kind of award for starting off the day with zucchini. The "I'm healthy and I know it" award? (wiggle. wiggle. wiggle. yeah. it's in your head now isn't it? you're welcome.)
