Lyn’s Gluten Free Zucchini Bread

Comfort foods are a good thing they make you feel warm inside especially on a snowy. I have to nick name this one as “hide it from me” or maybe “step away from the bread” it was so good that “Gone in 60 seconds” would work for a name also. I think you get the idea I kind of like this one. As we munched we started naming things that might go good with this, almond flour, pistachios, maybe orange rind….
