These Apple Zucchini Muffins with No Added Sugar are a must make for school lunches or a nourishing breakfast. They are light and delicious with a subtle sweet flavour.


  • 100g (1 medium) mashed banana
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 200g (around 1 1/2 medium sized apples) grated apple (see note)
  • 100g (1 small) grated zucchini (see note)
  • 1 1/2 cup wholemeal 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 175c for around 15 minutes or until lightly golden and a skewer inserted comes out clean
  • Cool slightly in the tin before transferring onto a wire baking rack


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

Squeeze excess liquid out of your apple and zucchini by grating them onto a clean dry tea towel and then roll up the tea towel tightly and squeeze over the sink until as much liquid is removed as possible.
