These muffins disappeared in minutes at our site! Thank you Katy for your awesome use of fresh fruits and veggies!
Since it is a quick bread style muffin it can easily be made gluten free (it worked superbly with a simple swap of the traditional flour for my favorite GF mix (Bob’s Red Mill) and 2 tsp of xantham gum).
