Recipe: Gluten Free Zucchini Carrot Parmesan Muffins

gluten free zucchini carrot parmesan muffins recipe

This is my favourite time at the farmers markets and we are so lucky in Calgary to have many many markets to choose from. I am blessed to live in a province that grows a ton of veggies and we are close enough to BC to get all their bounty of fruit.

It is the time of year when eating seasonally is the best! I love it until thanksgiving here in October and maybe that is why thanksgiving is one of my favourite holidays for I have so much local produce available to me.

Recently I picked up a giant zucchini so you, my followers will be lucky enough to get a ton of new gluten free zucchini recipes coming. Zucchini crackers, grilled zucchini rolled lasagna, chocolate zucchini bread and this recipe- Zucchini Carrot Parmesan Muffins.

These muffins would be a great substitute for a sandwich in a kids lunch. It is a savoury muffin yet tastes sweet with the shredded carrot in it.

I used Bob’s Red Mill gluten free flour 1 to 1 and I find it is available most anywhere. It is a nice light gluten free flour that I find works well in baking.

Here’s the recipe!
