Coconut Flour Zucchini Muffins (GF)

We had an abundance of coconut flour and zucchini so I was determined to make some sort of baked good using those ingredients. These muffins were  amazing. I told Louise I made coconut flour zucchini muffins and she admitted she was a lil bit scared, but after her first bite she was raving about them.
