Wholegrain Zucchini Muffin Recipe

March 19, 2017

So last week, I told you that I’m loving baking so much, that I’ve decided to start sharing my favourite baking recipes from all around the world. I also shared a more traditional ย recipe that has been passed down throughout my family. If you haven’t read it, check out my ‘Easy Amaretti Biscuit Recipe’ post – I’m sure you’ll love it! This week, I’ve decided to share a more contemporary recipe for Wholegrain Zucchini Muffins that is perfect for those always on the go (yes, this totally applies to me!). I find that between working, blogging, maintaining my fitness regime and socialising, it can be incredibly difficult to maintain a healthy and balanced diet. When thinking of what to make for lunch this week, I had a simple brief for my recipe – it needed to be:

  • Quick and simple
  • Something that I could make a batch of for the week
  • Healthy – oh, I’m mostly a plant-based eater, so veggies are a must!

With these requirements in mind, I came up with this Australian contemporary recipe, which I hope you’ll love. So let’s get started!

  6. Using a spoon, scoop even amounts of the muffin mixture into a greased muffin tray.
  7. Bake at 400ยฐ for 16-19 minutes.
  8. To check if the muffins are cooked, use a tooth pick or long skewer to poke into the middle of each muffin, Once you remove the skewer, it should come out clean.
  9. Let the muffins cool for approximately 15-20 minutes and serve with either a side salad or soup ๐Ÿ™‚
