Low Fat Zucchini Muffins!!

Good morning old friends! I know it’s been awhile again! I’m very busy being a Mom but I promise I havent forgotten about my blog!

Yesterday my tiny love decided to go back to sleep after breakfast and I took full advantage by getting in the kitchen to bake!! I’ve been baking lots, just not posting about it! Well I managed to snap some photos yesterday so I could share these lovely, healthy zucchini muffins with you!

I rejoined Weigh watchers to get back on track. These little muffins will set you back 150 calories or 3 Weight watchers points but are well worth it in my opinion! They bake up moist and are very low in fat.
