Paleo Zucchini Muffins
I picked my first big zucchini from my garden yesterday! I only used half of it to make these muffins, but I've been eating the muffins like candy so I'm sure in a couple of days I'll use the other half of the zucchini to make them again.
I love having fresh baked muffins around, especially when they're loaded with a fresh picked vegetable. The fact that these muffins are paleo makes them a great guilt free snack at anytime of the day. I actually just ate one about 10 minutes ago :)
