We make these Muffins when it’s our turn to provide a healthy shared morning tea at Playgroup or Kindergarten. The kids love them as they have a nice savoury but sweet flavour – thanks to the corn and carrot.
This is a great child friendly recipe that kids will enjoy making with you – my 5yo loved making them and managed to do most of the preparation and mixing herself.
2 cups SR Flour
1 medium Zucchini (grated with excess liquid squeezed out)
1 large Carrot
½ cup Grated Tasty Cheese
¼ cup Olive Oil
125g Tin of Creamed Corn
¾ cup Milk
1 egg (*we have made these without egg and they were still great)
Cooking oil spray
Preheat oven to 190oC & lightly grease a 20 cup Mini Muffin Tin (or a 12 cup regular Muffin tin).
Sift the flour then add the zucchini, carrot & cheese and toss to combine (a great sensory experience for the kids with clean hands).
Whisk together oil, milk, egg and creamed corn, add to the flour mixture & mix until just combined (don’t over mix).
Poor mixture into the Muffin Tray. Bake for aprox 30mins – or until they are golden brown and just firm to touch in the centre.
You can store these in an airtight container for 2 days or they can be frozen for 1 month.
We served ours at home with some cream cheese and a nice glass of cold milk.
Miss M was very proud of her baking efforts and took some to Kindy to share with her friends.
We hope you enjoy them as much as we do. Louise x
