Apple courgette muffins

    40 min

    I had apples and courgettes that were just begging to be turned into something yummy! Sometimes I sprinkle coloured sugar on top of the warm muffins to them a bit of texture and colour.

    I cut this recipe in half using two eggs, one apple and one zucchini. The result was a dozen very moist, tasty muffins. Next time, I think the addition of some walnuts and some extra spice would be nice. Thanks for the easy, tasty recipe, justsmurfy!  -  22 Sep 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Omg! Amazing! I have a ton of zucchini from my garden and decided to go with this recipe because it also has apples. I tripled the recipe so I can individually freeze them for the kids to have a quick and healthy breakfast. They turned out moist and fluffy. Not as dense as the other pics I saw (perhaps, because I almost doubled the zucchini and apples)? Absolutely perfect. I added raisins of course. Thank you!  -  26 Aug 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Loved it! Its an awesome twist on zucchinni bread! The apples and cinnamon really did the trick. This is a tasty and healthy subsitution for cupcake at family gatherings, office treats, and after dinner desserts! Thanks so much for the recipe!! Two thumbs up! P.s. For those who enjoy sugary snacks, this is probably not for you. Its mildly sweet and like i stated, much healthier for you  -  20 Sep 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
