    You had me at the word ‘Muffin.’

    I love carrots and zucchini. Delicious and even better in a muffin. For anyone who hasn’t tried this, you’ve got to give it a go!

      Yes, I agree. Making muffins with vegetables is a healthier way to eat what is essentially a sweet dessert.

    Love the muffins but hate the fact that I read this on an empty stomach. Absolutely delicious!

      Thanks Tim. Yes, eating carrot and Zucchini muffins on an empty stomach means you’d probably want to devour more!

      I couldn’t agree more, absolutely delicious.
