Banana Zucchini Muffins: Paleo Style

Banana Zucchini Muffins have become a HUGE hit in our house.

I debated with myself if I should tell my children that they were healthy and good for Paleo based diets or not.

In the end I told them and it didn’t bother them one bit! Healthy or not, they are fans of flavor and these Banana Zucchini Muffins are hanging out in the town square of flavor town!

They are seriously good!

These are the exact ones that I made on Facebook Live. <= Click to watch.
