How To Cook: Vegan Apple Carrot Zucchini Muffins

by How To Mommy on 07.27.12

I had a zucchini sitting in my fridge and really wanted some zucchini bread.

But I really hate all the fat and sugar that’s in most recipes. Especially if I give it to my girls for breakfast!

I saw this recipe (made a few of my own tweaks) and was overall really impressed with them!
