Cheesy Zucchini Mini Muffins


by Nurse Nicky August 28, 2016 1 Comment

These little mini muffins couldn't be easier or more nutritious! Only 5 ingredients! They can be eaten for breakfast with butter or avocado, taken for lunch or even used as little soup or casserole toppers! 

They're a great way to sneak in that extra veg for the kids and the perfect easy quick dish to whip up for the next b'day party or shared lunch - you'll be sure to impress. 

 

Time: 20mins
Makes: 12 mini muffins

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 medium grated zucchini
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup grated tasty cheese
  • 1 tsp paprika (optional)
Directions:
 
1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Spray a mini muffin tin with cooking spray (I use coconut spray) or grease with butter.

2. Place the grated zucchini in a bowl and sprinkle with salt. This will help release the water content and make your muffins less soggy. Let the zucchini rest for 15mins.

3. Next squeeze out the water from the zucchini using a tea towel, cheese cloth or nut mylk bag.

4. Sprinkle the coconut flour over the zucchini and mix well so zucchini is coated.

4. Add the eggs, grated cheese and paprika (if using) and mix until combined.

5. Fill the muffin tray and bake for 15-20mins until golden brown.

6. Loosen the muffins from the tin with a knife once cooked and then remove from tin once cooled.

 
Enjoy!  I'm sure they'll become a regular on rotation in your household too.

Oreos

I've seen many remakes of the American classic Oreo cookie, many of them raw, most of them containing dates or coconut sugar, so I set out to make a version with even less sugar!

These deliciously chocolatey (is that even proper English?) biscuits can be made and eaten as is, or you can fill them with whatever filling you choose! I used mascarpone here, which complemented the biscuit really well, but if you're dairy free you could try some whipped coconut cream or even coconut butter for a slightly sweeter filling.
