Free Recipe Friday – Zucchini Muffins

This week for Free Recipe Friday at Pilates of Charleston, we bring you Flourless Zucchini Muffins! Much thanks to Instructor Julie who offered it up! Who doesn’t love a zucchini bread? Better yet, a zucchini muffin! And…who doesn’t love a flourless one? Because they’re flourless, these muffins are low carb, which is nice because then we can enjoy are carbs elsewhere in our day after our classes. Zucchini is a vegetable that’s packed full of nutrients like Vitamin C, potassium, folate and Vitamin A, all of which promote overall good health. These muffins are awesome as a “grab and go” snack or breakfast, making them a perfect choice to snag before you head to Pilates of Charleston. And they’re so delicious, heck…it’’s like eating a cupcake for breakfast!

If you make these, snap a picture and share it on our Facebook or Instagram page and let us know what you think!
