I have gone through a stage with each of my boys when they would refuse to eat vegetables. I still snuck the vegies in where ever I could, pizza sauce, pasta sauce and baking were all good hiding places!
Now, they will all have a go at pretty much anything and seem rather proud of these chocolate muffins with cunningly disguised zucchini or courgette as I was brought up calling them!
The choc chips aren’t essential, they work as more of a distraction to stop little people hunting for the veg! Feel free to omit them if you would rather not have them and maybe add 1-2 teaspoons vanilla extract.
280g plain flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
40g cocoa powder
140g soft brown sugar
90g butter, melted
340g zucchini/courgette, grated
150g white choc chips
Preheat the oven to 190 degrees Centigrade, line a 12 hole muffin tin.
Combine the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and cocoa in a large bowl.
In a jug combine the egg, sugar, milk, butter, courgette and chic chips.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix well.
Spoon the mix into the prepared tin and bake for 20-25mins.
Allow to cool on a wire rack.
