Bite-sized Mini Zucchini Muffins with Pineapple Glaze!

The muffins are naturally sweetened with banana and coconut sugar, which makes for healthier and gluten-free dessert…or breakfast!  The glaze is optional, but adds a festive flare!

Unlike a lot of gluten-free baked goods that use a ton of different ingredients, these were simply made with Bob Red Mill’s all-purpose gluten-free flour mix. These muffins are butter and egg free, and uses crushed pineapple, zucchini and banana instead, which makes for a fluffy muffin!

Containing only 65 calories and 1 gram of fat per muffin, they are pretty diet friendly as well!
