There are some vegetables that make great bases for bakes – courgette, sweet potato, carrot and black beans being some of our favourites! We always have a glut of courgettes around this time of your so we always make LOTS of these muffins to help use them up. I hope you love them as much as we do!


  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 medium courgette
  • 1 egg
  • 120g nut butter
  • 75g honey
  • 25g raw cacao powder (or cocoa powder)
  • 40g cacao nibs (or chocolate chips)
  • 2 tablespoon milled flaxseeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder


  • Blender
  • Grater
  • Tea towel
  • Muffin tray
  • Measuring scales
  • Mixing bowl


Nuts, egg


1 Preheat the oven to 180c (200c non-fan assisted)
2 Whizz all of the ingredients in a blender except the courgette and cacao nibs/choc chips
3 Grate the courgette and squeeze as much liquid out of it as you can (we grate it over a clean tea towel and then squeeze it over the sink)
4 Finally, mix everything together and spoon into a greased muffin tray (it makes enough for around 10 muffins)
5 Bake for 20 mins and allow to cool before gobbling! Can be stored for up to 5 days in the fridge
