A little while ago I posted a picture of my zucchini muffins with whole grain flour on my Instagram. And quite a few of you asked for the recipe! So, I am happy to share it with you today!
I was looking for a new breakfast recipe, something a little different than my usual eggs, tuna, porridge… and my sister recommended these zucchini muffins. And they are amazing!
There are a couple of things to have in mind when making these zucchini muffins recipe healthy!
First, make sure to squeeze out as much juice as possible out of the grated zucchini. Some have more juice, some have none. You can leave the grated zucchini to sit for around 30 minutes or help speed up the process and squeeze the juice out, using your hands or a spoon.
Second, the amount of flour you are going to need for these easy vegetable muffins, depends on the size of the zucchini you are using. For the texture you should be looking for, check the video in the end of this post!
Third, you can use regular flour for these weight loss zucchini muffins as well. But whole grain flour is a healthier option (richer in minerals and vitamins). But also it looks nicer and it gives more flavor to the muffins.
These courgette muffins or zucchini muffins with whole grain flour are best served with cucumber salad and some tea. The combination is out of this world good!
