Gluten-Free Zucchini Carrot Muffins

Rated as 4.5 out of 5 Stars

"I was in the process of tweaking a Zucchini Carrot Muffin recipe to my taste when we found out we couldn't have gluten. This recipe is now better that any of the gluten efforts. I try to keep these in the freezer, but have trouble staying ahead of the crowd."

Great muffins, even if your not gluten -free. My family loves them. They're not really sweet-just perfect. They go great as an accompaniment to soup on a cold day. I've made them 3 times and...
