About this recipe: Healthy savoury muffin that tastes great. Wholemeal flour and oats add nuttiness and flavour, and a pinch of chilli powder adds a bite.

Raven Gisborne-Hawke's Bay, New Zealand

Makes: 8 large muffins

  • 200g plain flour
  • 50g wholemeal flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 pinch chilli powder
  • 35g oatmeal or porridge oats
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2 large courgette, grated
  • 115g grated cheese
  • 125ml milk

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:40min 

  1. Heat oven to 220 C / Gas 7.
  2. Sieve dry ingredients into a bowl. Whisk in porridge oats and form a well in the centre. Add egg, oregano and oil to dry ingredients and mix in.
  3. Add courgette and cheese and combine. Add enough milk to make a batter.
  4. Divide batter between muffin tins. I used large paper muffin cups, so got 8 muffins out of the mixture, 2 tablespoons in each.
  5. Bake until lightly browned on the top and a skewer inserted to the centre comes out clean, about 25 minutes. Adjust time if you are making larger or smaller muffins.
  6. Enjoy!

I've made these three times now, they are very moreish and a great snack. Also works really well with dairylea if you run out of cheese.... - 17 Nov 2010


Really lovely, split them and put a little butter on. Super. - 27 Sep 2010


i'm hopeless at following recipes, I find one I like then realise I don't have half the ingredients! And make it anyway. So I made these muffins without the oats or wholemeal flour...... they were more spongey than muffin but YUM YUM they were easy to make and lovely with butter. I will try again and get it right then post an update. Recommended - 15 Aug 2013
