I never know how to spell Zucchini. Or Zuchini. Or Zuchinni. Bloody hell. It’s just one of THOSE words for me that I struggle with. Actually I struggle with the English language most of the time and that word is just a royal pain in the arse.
Anyway I cooked a batch of these gluten free goodies and it didn’t have me swearing about the ineffectiveness of gluten free flour (which is what normally happens when I bake) so I thought it best to share these.
They had a great texture and could be eaten the next day. (Which is a rarity)
Also it uses OIL as opposed to butter which I prefer.
Ingredients for muffins
150 g gluten free ham
1 small onion grated
1 cup of gluten free self-raising flour
1/2 cup cold pressed olive oil
2 cups grated zucchini
1 cup grated tasty cheese
Pre-heat a hot oven to 200C
Place flour, oil, eggs in bowl and mix.
Add grated cheese, ham, onion and zucchini to flour/oil mix and stir well.
Spoon into non-stick muffin pans (of any size) but do not over-fill muffin pans.
Place in oven for 15 minutes (mini muffins), 20 minutes (cup-cake size muffins) or 25 minutes (large muffins).
Its a great way to hide a green vegetable for small people!
