Here’s how to whip up these delicious muffins that make for a great way to sneak in some veggies!


  • 1 medium zucchini, grated (do not squeeze out the moisture)
  • 1/4 of red capsicum (optional), finely diced
  • 1 cup grated cheese(s) (feel free to use a mix of your favorite cheeses)
  • 2 large eggs
  • Salt & pepper to taste, plus any additional seasonings you prefer
  • 125g (1 cup) all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • Butter, for greasing the muffin tin


  1. Preheat the Oven:
    • Start by preheating your oven to 180°C (350°F). Using butter, grease a 9-cup muffin tin to ensure the muffins don’t stick.
  2. Mix the Wet Ingredients:
    • In a large mixing bowl, combine the grated zucchini, finely diced red capsicum (if using), grated cheese, and eggs. Mix well until everything is evenly distributed. Season with salt, pepper, and any additional seasonings you like.
  3. Add the Dry Ingredients:
    • Sift the all-purpose flour and baking powder directly into the wet mixture. Gently fold the mixture together until just combined. Be careful not to overmix to keep the muffins light and fluffy.
  4. Fill the Muffin Tin:
    • Divide the batter evenly among the greased muffin cups. Fill each cup about 3/4 of the way to leave room for the muffins to rise.
  5. Bake:
    • Place the muffin tin in the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the muffins are golden on top and a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
  6. Cool and Serve:
    • Once baked, remove the muffin tin from the oven. Let the muffins cool in the tin for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
    • These muffins are delicious served warm, but they can also be enjoyed at room temperature.
