A Healthy Treat: Zucchini Muffins

So you’re on the mission to eat healthy, and change your life which each meal - super exciting!  After cutting out gluten, processed sugar, dairy, and highly processed grains, I’ve been on a mission to find delicious yet guilt free ways to still indulge.   If you’re in the mood for a yummy breakfast bite, satisfying snack, or even a not-so-sweet dessert look no further.  These muffins are super moist and can even be topped with fresh fruit for an extra treat.
