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).

    These were so good. I just tried them to take to my Bible study tomorrow. I hope there are some left to take. Thanks for a great recipe. By the way I used a half cup of coconut oil and a half cup of veg oil. Once again – delicious. Just curious as to how many calories are in each.
