Gluten Free Dairy Free Zucchini, Ham and Corn Muffins
I love muffins. All kinds of muffins – sweet, fruit filled, with veggies, topped with streusel… You get the idea! Muffins are one of the first items to be baked successfully when people first go gluten free. they are really forgiving and versatile. They can round out a meal, be a meal when served with some salad and a protein and they can be topped with an icing and turned into an impromptu cupcake when needed. What’s not to love about them? I also love savory muffins. They are a great stand in for a sandwich when filled with savoy toppings for a lunchtime treat. Try these Gluten Free Dairy Free Zucchini, Ham and Corn muffins for your next brunch or picnic in the park. Be sure to put a bunch in your freezer as they travel really well for all the zoo trips, park play dates, car trips and beach parties you have in store this summer.
