Carrot & Zucchini Breakfast Muffins

These are ideally made ahead and brought out for breakfast or snacks. It’s packed full of goodness and can be served at room tempeterature or reheated!

Not everyone has time to cook, let alone make something ahead of time. But once you do – your future self will be thanking you when you pull said prepared food items out of the fridge/freezer and just re-heat and serve. Such are these muffins. Here we go.

The recipe is straighforward. You need two bowls – or like what I used 1 bowl and 1 measuring jug. In the bowl – add in the flour, grated carrot and zucchini (it’s fine to just use one type i.e. just carrot or just zucchini), cheese and salt & pepper. In the measuring jug – add in eggs, use a fork and whisk then add in some cooking oil and mix. 

Combine both together.

This recipe makes only 7 muffins. So you will need to double it for more. Start with 7 muffins, and see if you like the recipe. In a muffin pan, use some butter and grease 7 muffin holes. There is no need to use any cupcake liners.

Pop them into a pre-heated oven and cook. Let them cool before taking them out of the tin.

You could use many types of different fillings including chopped up ham/pre-cooked bacon/chopped mushrooms/chopped tomatoes/ spinach and the list goes on. These muffins are packed full of goodness from the eggs used in the mixture and the added veggies and make an excellent addition in your kid’s snack or lunch box. Try them!

Here’s another idea, for a quick breakfast or snack if you’ve got any overripe bananas in your kitchen.

I couldn’t help myself. I had to add golden raisins. No regrets. Thanks.
