Bacon, Zucchini and Basil Muffins


These super yummy little morsels are so easy to make and are a great way to get kids to eat zucchini, they won’t even know it’s in there! They are perfect for an afternoon tea, or pack into the kids school lunches!




  • 300 gm Zucchini (grated)
  • 1 small Onion (finely diced)
  • 2 rashers Bacon (finely diced)
  • 1/2 cup grated Cheese
  • 1/8 cup Olive Oil
  • 1 cup Self Raising Flour (sifted)
  • 3 eggs (lightly beaten)
  • 1 teaspoon GOURMET GARDEN TUBE Parsley
  • 1 teaspoon GOURMET GARDEN TUBE Basil
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 190C.

Generously spray 2 patty pan trays with non-stick cooking spray, (If you don’t have patty pan trays, use any muffin trays, I have even doubled this recipe and made big texas muffin size ones).

Place all ingredients into a large mixing bowl and stir with a fork until combined.

Spoon into prepared patty pan trays.


Bake in the oven for 30 minutes until golden. Turning once after about 15 minutes.

Remove from patty pan trays with a fork, and cool on a wire rack. They freeze beautifully if wrapped in cling wrap and placed in a storage container, I love my Tupperware freezer mate containers as they really do stop freezer burn.
