Oatmeal, Zucchini and Pecan Muffins Recipe

It finally feels like springtime here in Minnesota! The birds are outside chirping every morning, the snow is almost melted and over the weekend we had the highest temp since last October. We walked to the park and got some much needed fresh air! I love spring days! It's my favorite time of the year!

Today's recipe is for some Oatmeal, Zucchini and Pecan Muffins!! These muffins aren't too sweet, which I like and they taste SO good with some butter on top! Great for breakfast or an afternoon snack and even better with some coffee or tea!! Enjoy and have a fabulous week!!
