School Snackbox - Courguette Muffins

We love sending the kids into school with healthy home baked treats such as this delicious Courguette Muffin. It looks deceptively like a cake but it is jam packed full of healthy ingredients to help fill tummies and give the children energy to learn effectively throughout the day. 


  • 2 bacon rashers, finely chopped
  • 1 brown onion, finely chopped
  • 2 Courgettes coarsely grated
  • 2 cups (300g) self-raising flour
  • 1 cup (120g) coarsely grated tasty cheddar
  • 2 tablespoons dill, finely chopped
  • 2 Eggs, lightly whisked
  • 3/4 cup (185ml) milk
  • 60g butter, melted


  1. Preheat oven to 180C. Line 6 holes of a 3/4 cup (185ml) muffin pan with paper cases.
  2. Heat a medium frying pan over medium heat. Add the bacon and onion and cook, stirring, for 5 mins or until onion softens. Set aside to cool slightly.
  3. Combine the courgette, flour, cheddar and dill in a large bowl. Add the onion mixture and stir to combine. Whisk the egg, milk and butter in a jug. Add to the courgette mixture and gently stir until just combined. Spoon evenly among the lined holes.
  4. Bake for 30 mins or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Serve warm or at room temperature.
