Zucchini & Ham Muffins

I love savoury muffins which can be served as a healthy breakfast or light snack for kids whenever they feeling hungry. It is definitely healthier compare to the usual sweet muffins. But if you are sweet tooth, you may find savoury muffins are not your kind of food. Luckily my kids not complaining and happily chomp down these healthy and hearty zucchini and ham muffins. ^0^
