It was Sunday morning and that creative cooking bug that pokes at me so often was doing its thing again.  Seemed like a good time to create a muffin of some kind.  I opened the fridge to seek inspiration, only to have the zucchinis practically throw themselves at me.  Hence this oil-free, dairy-free, egg-free, gluten-free and soy-free, low-sugar Zucchini Oat Muffin recipe was born.  Many recipes I come up with require tweaking and a second or third go around before I can share, but not this one! I got lucky first time around.  And now you're getting lucky!

For this recipe, I used a combination of gluten-free flour (I really like Trader Joe's brand) and oat flour made with certified gluten-free oats.  You can make your own oat flour by using your blender to grind the oats.  Super easy! If you don’t have gluten-free flour blend on hand and you don’t have issues with gluten (I don’t, I just like to mix it up and make sure you folks have plenty from which to choose!), feel free to use whole-wheat pastry flour instead. These muffins are only slightly sweet and are especially delicious warmed, with a TINY bit of vegan butter if you're feeling dangerous, (and I was).  :-)

Feel free to leave out the walnuts if you don't like them or are eating an extra low-fat diet.  I love their flavor and texture in this dish, and the nice dose of Omega 3's they provide (along with the chia seeds). Enjoy!
