These freeze really well and are great to make in advance for lunchboxes.

You can make them in larger silicon moulds or muffin tins, just cook for slightly longer.

You can use Self Raising Flour instead of Spelt Flour and baking powder.

Mini Zucchini Savoury Muffins

    Loved these used Olive Oil and didn't use quite as much but still tasty.

    These were delicious and very much enjoyed by my children, thank you. I used 60g of oil, 3 eggs and I strained the liquid from the zuchini to make 15 muffin sized quiches.

    Thanks for your feedback Jenevivedixon23.  Sorry about the "baking flour" it should have said Baking Powder!  Yes you were right to use SR flour, will fix that up now  tmrc_emoticons.) You can reduce the oil if you find it too oily.  I made it again today with 60g oil & it was fine. I also spread the mixture into a 20 x 30 slice tray and once cooked cut it into squares. The other thing you can do is squeeze out the grated zucchini as it is very watery and you don't need all that liquid in the mixture.

    these were so greasy, not surprising with that much oil I guess. I'm wondering where I went wrong - I followed the recipe exactly but wasn't sure what 'baking flour' was so, after google searches settled for self raising flour... is this right?

    So yummy! I'd maybe add another egg and a tad less flour next time tmrc_emoticons.)
