Gluten-Free Zucchini Lemon Muffins Topped w/Oatmeal Coconut Crumble

IMG_5612

If I didn’t have an online shopping problem before I definitely have one now. I bought nine cook books on Amazon in the span of ONE day! I clearly have no self control. I express a lack of self control in many faucets of my life including the indulgment (new word) of sugary treats. These muffins are actually pretty healthy so eating three in one sitting (which, I’ve never done before..) won’t leave you feeling guilty. These lovely muffins were adapted from a clean eating food blog (not a book that I impulsively bought): ifoodreal.com. Enjoy 🙂
