    Ingredients For Gluten-Free Zucchini Muffins

    Sometimes gluten-free baked goods can come out dense and not as delicious as their wheat counterparts. But if you use the right ingredients, this doesn’t have to be the case! Here are the gluten-free and vegan ingredients that we use to yield the best results!

    Do You Peel Zucchini for Zucchini Bread?

    There is no need to peel zucchini for zucchini bread, in fact, it’s best if you keep it on due to the nutrition in the skin. Also, since it’s shredded, you won’t even notice the skin in the end product.
