Garden Salad With Orange Vinaigrette

Garden Salad With Orange Vinaigrette

This tender, moist and healthy zucchini muffin recipe is a family friendly winner. I have paired spelt flour with regular all purpose flour for added depth of flavour, fiber and minerals. Yogurt and eggs boost richness, protein and moisture making these a nutritious muffin for snacking. These are delicious with or without the 1/2 cup of chocolate chips or 1 cup of finely diced apple to the batter but adding bursts of sweetness really make this muffin stand out.
