Gluten free Banana Zucchini Muffins

I am a bad blogger :(. Life has gotten a bit chaotic over the past several weeks, and in order to find time to get everything done, well blogging fell to the side. But then at a 5k last weekend people started asking about how my new diary-free, gluten-free life was going. It’s actually going quite well. I had no idea people were so interested.

I remember having zucchini bread when I was young, and thought it was really cool until I found out it had zucchini in it, and then I didn’t like it so much. It was definitely one of those weird childhood food things. You find out it’s good for you and then you don’t want it anymore. A couple of years ago I had grilled zucchini at a restaurant and loved it!! I couldn’t stop eating zucchini!

My mom has been slightly obsessed with making gluten-free things for me. I keep telling her I don’t need bread for carbs, vegetables and fruit are much better! But then we found this recipe, and with a little tweaking I give you diary-free, gluten-free banana zucchini muffins. You will not stop eating them, seriously, we’re on our 3rd batch…
