Lunchbox Friendly Zucchini & Bacon Muffins

Lunchbox Friendly Zucchini & Bacon Muffins

I’ve been making my youngest son zucchini slice constantly as it’s one of his favourites.  So, I thought I would adapt the recipe slightly to create something similar in muffin form!


  • 265g self raising flour
  • 100g cheese , grated
  • 80g medium zucchinis (approx 2 zucchinis) grated
  • 125g bacon
  • 180g milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 50g olive oil
  • salt and pepper to season


  1. Grease and line a standard 12 hole muffin tin with muffin cases.
  2. Preheat oven to 180 degrees (160 degrees if using fan forced).
  3. Place grated zucchini into a sieve or strainer and drain all of the excess liquid out. Place into a large mixing bowl.
  4. Add all remaining ingredients to the bowl and combine.
  5. Divide the mixture equally between the muffin cases.
  6. Bake in the oven for approximately 15 minutes or until cooked through (test with a skewer).
  7. Leave the muffins in the pan to cool slightly, before placing onto a wire rack to cool completely.


Of course, this recipe can be adapted to be gluten free by changing your choice of flour.
