    Ok… I’ll be honest. I’ve always been a little skeptical about throwing veggies in my muffins… but I should probably get over it and give it a try. Especially since I have all of the ingredients for these AND they are gluten-free (win win!). Thanks for sharing it at Healthy Vegan Fridays Sandi =) I have pinned this awesome recipe to our Pinterest Board.
