Zucchini muffins: gluten, refined sugar and nut-free

I ventured into the world of baking today, and just finished my first batch of zucchini muffins. While admittedly not looking like much (I still have to work on how to make them look a bit more appealing), they turned out suuuuuuuuuuper delicious, if I do say so myself 😊. And they are really easy to make too.

I opted for millet shreds instead of flour, which worked out surprisingly well. Also, I didn’t add any sugar and just added loads of spices. Alternatively, you could add a tablespoon of honey or maple syrup or sugar – as you prefer.

Hope you enjoy these as much as I did. They make a great snack. Enjoy…9PLG2RzdKYXWox7xw4iCl9SWumZ9HNaBQPAMa_X0VU3ksizX49xOinPYOU_x8BMPP5Fg_6RXhOvNnPIdFpm904Oow7QgEw1zz62LaZpj_USINy20zicDjiECc_lyorAgMkJhBIDKzEP4q9MqYgOKDC0jskpcLOl2jEKkMN8Pk8m-KGpf9XtRQqcUW2
