What do you call a bikini you wear to the zoo?
A zucchini!
My parents were kind enough the other day to bring over a massive zucchini. I thought to myself, what am I going to do with this (I’m the only one who likes zucchini in the family).

So instead of savoury, I thought we would sweeten it up! These are packed with healthy fibre and melt in your mouth flavour! Kid approved!

‘Zookini’ muffins 


  • 4 cups grated zucchini 
  • 2 beaten organic eggs or 2 flax eggs (4 tbsp hot water with 3 tsp ground flax)
  • 2 teaspoons madagascar vanilla extract
  • 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup unpasteurized honey
  • 3 cups sprouted spelt flour
  • 1/4 cup hemp hearts
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 1½ tsp cinnamon
  • chocolate chips (optional)

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, whisk the eggs then combine the zucchini, vanilla, olive oil, honey. Stir gently until mixed; set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, hemp hearts, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Stir to combine.
  • Add wet to dry and mix (avoid over-mixing). Mix in chocolate chips.
  • Pour the batter in a muffin tin greased with coconut oil. 
  • Bake for 15 minutes or until the muffins are golden brown and the tops spring back when you press on them.
  • Makes 22 – 24 muffins.
