Zucchini Muffins

Zucchini muffins are delicious! And zucchini are easy to grow and once they start growing, they can be very prolific. I love growing them because they are also very versatile in both sweet and savoury recipes.

Peeling Zucchini

This tender, moist and healthy zucchini muffin recipe is a family friendly winner. I have paired spelt flour with regular all purpose flour for added depth of flavour, fiber and minerals. Yogurt and eggs boost richness, protein and moisture making these a nutritious muffin for snacking. These are delicious with or without the 1/2 cup of chocolate chips or 1 cup of finely diced apple to the batter but adding bursts of sweetness really make this muffin stand out.

These muffins work great in individual loaf pans like these below. Just increase the baking time by 5-10 minutes.

If you are growing your own and find yourself with more than you can use or give away, freeze some for the winter. Best grated with some of the water gently squeezed out, then store in 2 c portions in the freezer for easy baking or casseroles.

Some other great ways to use courgette is in homemade relish or pickles, slices grilled on the barbecue, cheesy casseroles and smoothies. Of course you can slow the production by harvesting the blossoms for my favourite treat-fried ricotta stuffed blossoms.

Japanese inspired Miso Baked Oysters are bright and tangy with lemon, an unctuous riff on Oysters Rockefeller. Oysters baked over spinach with a rich and zippy sauce and topped with a touch of cheese to seal in the creamy goodness. But guess what? just omit the cheesy topping for a dairy free dish!

Chirashi Sushi Bowl (aka Superfood Bowl)

Chirashi sushi bowl recipe (often Chirashizushi in Japanese restaurants) is my second healthy eating meal for January. This recipe is so easy to customize that it’s great for families with picky eaters. Beautifully arranged ingredients over rice make a delicious and unique dish for company or enjoy this one bowl meal during movie night at home. There are a few theories behind the origin of Chirashi, the seasoned rice dish with delectable ingredients scattered over the top. The word itself means to scatter. Some say it was during the 1600’s when Japanese people were ordered to live frugal lives including plain rice.

    Such a great snack idea for summer picnics and outings. I am always looking for zucchini recipes once my farm box starts overflowing with them.

    Great recipe, with lovely and simple but well-considered ingredients. Your choice of spices is great, and I love the idea of using spelt. Love the apple idea too – I’ve done chocolate chips before, but never apple and it seems like it’d be wonderful. And I have to say, I quite like the colourful muffin wrappers. It’s a really nice way to add some punch to your presentation! Cheers!

    • Thanks Sean! I started using apple because one of my kids doesn’t like chocolate if you can believe it. It’s a nice fresh burst of sweetness.
