  • 1 1/2 cup self raising flour


  • Preheat your oven to 170c and prepare a muffin tin
  • In a bowl whisk together the banana, eggs, oil, yogurt, vanilla extract and cinnamon
  • Stir in the apple and zucchini then carefully fold in the flour, taking care not to over-mix
  • Cook at 170c for around 15 minutes or until lightly golden and a skewer inserted comes out clean

These Apple Zucchini Muffins freeze well. After baking, cool completely then transfer into a ziplock bag and freeze for two – three months.

If your apples and zucchini are particularly juicy squeeze excess liquid out by grate the apple and zucchini onto a clean dry tea towel and then roll tightly and squeeze over the sink until as much liquid is removed as possible.
