I guarantee kids will love them and that you won’t stop at eating just one!!
Absolutely amazing and delicious (makes 24 muffins).
So yummy i have now passed on the recipes to 5 friends and have made 3 batches, they dont’ last long…..At last a lovely way to dispose of all my courgettes.
Great recipe! The kids love them and will definately be making loads more.
Very delicious, have also put some in the freezer, so will see if they are as delish when they come out!!
Fantastic recipe, already making the second batch in 3 days. I’ve tried a variation as my daughter doesn’t like walnuts or raisins (!) – flaked almonds and sultanas instead work well too.
Was baking them for the family, and I got distracted and forgot the egg. No problem though, just as good and it meant I could eat them too as I’m allergic to eggs – the rest of the family had to share. Didn’t have raisins and only a handful of nuts. So one batch was plain the other with nuts. The nuts make them better I think but plain ones are also very tasty – especially with butter!
Gave my friend some of these without telling her the mystery ingredient!
I asked for feedback on these and she told me they were the nicest moistest lightest muffins she had tried! x
