    These came out amazingly! I did tweak the recipe, first by doubling everything to make 12 muffins, and by using 150g wholemeal flour, 50g oats instead of 200g plain flour. Also added lots more cinnamon, ginger, and less sugar (150g, but probably still could have done with less). Finally, added 3 tsp chia seeds and 1 tbsp desiccated coconut to soak up the moisture from the courgettes. Added walnuts, pumpkin and sunflower seeds in to the mixture and on top to decorate. Fantastic texture and taste! Would definitely recommend. Check out my instagram to see more recipes and bakes:  -  24 Apr 2018


    These are great. Only thing I would say is squeeze the water from the courgettes before adding. Also I had them in for 30' at mark 5 gas.  -  22 Apr 2017


    The muffins are quite delicious! I doubled the recipe based on the reviews of others and ended up with 16 small muffins. I added 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon and thought it was a nice addition. I did, though, feel as though the muffins were a little sweet. In the future (on a double recipe) I will try cutting the sugar back by 1/4 cup. All in all, a great recipe that my whole family enjoyed!!  -  25 Aug 2013  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
