Gluten Free Zucchini Masa Muffins

I was in the mood for a healthy low calorie muffin today and had some organic zucchini's that needed to be used up, but I was out of most of my gluten free flours. I decided to try making them with Masa Harina.  They turned out moist and delicious!  If you haven't tried Masa Harina, you should. Just make sure that you buy non GMO.  Bob's Redmill states that they only use non GMO corn and you can make so many great things with it. Like homemade tortillas!
