Accessories you need



These muffins don’t rise a huge amount during cooking, so if you wanted to make 12 larger ones adjust cooking time to suit - but we personally prefer them smaller and more snack size.

Due to the high volume of yummy zucchini expect a denser texture to than a that of a more traditional muffins - but they are certainly tasty!

For variety try other dried fruit like cranberries or raisins or add 2 tbsp chopped nuts or seeds.

Freeze well.
