GF Vegan Zucchini Oat Muffins

November 6, 2020
I feel like nothing happened this year (mostly due lockdown) yet it's already almost over.
How did that even happen?
I noticed time flies when you do lots of fun things with people you love but how does this happen when you rarely leave the house or not even?
Maybe because I have spent most of my free time writing, reading books, catching up with movies or cooking and baking. Yep, a lot of cooking was involved. And some baking, too. Like this savory zucchini oat breakfast muffins.

This is more of a savory muffin with cinnamon. Enjoy with vegan butter, soup, or cut in half and fill with vegan salami and veggies if you want to eat it as a mini sandwich.
