Zucchini Pizza Muffins

Whilst these zucchini pizza muffins are delicious warm from the oven, they are just as tasty cold.   I had a couple for breakfast the next day, split and covered with my scrambled eggs.   A breakfast of champions!  The muffins are only 2g net carbs too!  Muffins for everyone!

Although the recipe says that they make 10, I made 11 with my batch but it could have been me being a bit cautious with the mixture distribution.  I didn’t want to pile the batter up and end up with a muffin explosion.  Looking at the photos I think I could have spread the batter of the 11th muffin between the others happily.
