Secret Recipe Club

 Happy Monday y’all!

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about what is super super important to me.

All I can come up with is family.

Just when I think I can’t love them enough, they do something to make me love them even more 🙂

So, that’s my little sentimental thought for the day.

Let’s talk about how awesome this Monday is.

It’s Secret Recipe Club Monday…duh 🙂

My recipe this month comes from Margaret, the cook/baker behind the blog Tea and Scones.

Perfect name, right?

I can almost never have a scone without a warm cup of tea, especially if it’s a glazed vanilla bean scone.

Tea and scones also brought up memories of my grandmother’s house where the scones are hot, stuffed w/ juicy plump raisins, sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar, and topped with butter.

The conversation isn’t half bad either.

Margaret is a simple blogger, I love her style, she is straight forward, she loves scones, she loves to bake and eat, and she loves to share her recipes with all of us lovely people.

Obviously, I could have gone for a scone recipe, but I was craving something chocolate.

Surprise, surprise.

Enter Margaret’s recipe for Whole Wheat Chocolate Zucchini Muffins .

I mean, since they have zucchini in them, they must be healthy, right?

Mhhhhhm.

Plus, the chocolate balances that zucchini out.

I want to have my cake and eat it too. 🙂

Plus, they are sneaky muffins with all that healthy zucchini in there.

These muffins are super melt in your mouth…if that makes sense.

Oh, and you know we do things paleo-style around here.

Yes, I made them paleo.

I’m sure you are just totally surprised 😉

Plus, I kept the chocolate chips.

So, obviously I get extra points for that, right?

Plus, you just can’t go wrong with a coconut butter drizzle.
