How’s this for a mouthful? Vegan Apricot Ginger Almond Zucchini Spelt muffins. Hard to say, but I’m really enjoying them! I’ve made other variations of these muffins and they are always delicious. Dried pear and walnut are also particularly good. The ginger in this variation is zippy and really tasty!
