I’ve been making zucchini slice forever and my kids devour it, these zucchini picnic muffins are a twist on my zucchini slice recipe but with a few extra bits to turn them into the perfect picnic egg muffin.
I made them over the weekend as zucchini are finally getting economical again, yay for spring/summer!
My kids are fans of egg muffins, I have shared my cauliflower cheese egg muffin recipe previously, they are probably more sneaky than these ones as in this recipe zucchini muffin recipe you can see the veggies.
These muffins are gluten-free, but nice and filling and great for fueling small tummies for breakfast, lunch and in the lunchbox! They freeze and defrost well.
For young ones, I don’t add salt, but you may wish to add some seasoning.
If your kids are muffin fans, and you love the idea of zucchini in a muffin but you are after a sweet style muffin, then be sure to check out my new double chocolate grain-free zucchini muffins they are gluten free, dairy free and refined sugar-free with some hidden vegetables to boot!
