Savory Zucchini Muffins

Here’s another tasty way to use up your bounty of zucchinis. These tasty muffins are lovely. They’re light and fluffy ad with the ‘cheesy’ flavor of nutritional yeast a tang of a bit of mustard they really filled us up for Sunday morning brunch.

    Tasty, easy and delicious! Were more like a biscuit than a muffin though. They would do well to be cooked in the same way as scones.

    Hi Jeannette,
    Thank you for your comment. I’m glad you enjoyed the muffins. It’s difficult to categorize some things, as each country calls things a bit differently. In some countries even a cookie is called a biscuit so it’s a bit hard to say. As there was “egg” (egg-replacement) in the recipe it qualified more as a muffin than a biscuit or scone. Usually the biscuits and scones use the baking powder and no egg. As long as they are tasty, healthy and vegan :-) then you can call them whatever you’d like :-) It’s a good recipe. We really enjoyed them and were happy to share the recipe with people. I’m glad you liked them.

    Just made these and they were yummy & so easy! I replaced 1/2 cup sr flour with wholemeal (& 1/2 tsp baking powder), and didn’t have powdered mustard so used 1 tsp dijon in the wet mix (probably could’ve used a bit more). Also used a bit more liquid – i think the wholemeal flour seems to soak it up more. Will definitely be making these again!

    Hi Trish,
    Thank you for your comment, and for sharing your adaptations. They sound yummy. Yes, often I have adapted a recipe using other kinds of mustard’s. And, yes, I have found that the whole wheat flour takes a bit more liquid. I think next time I make these, I will try your adaptations.

    Delicious, but I am not adding salt at all, just a teaspoon of vegan bullion powder. I once added all salt required and it was hardly edible, sorry.

    Hi Agnes, Thank you for your comment and suggestion. Yes, the salty flavor is a matter of personal taste. It does give a boast to the chees-y flavor, but less is fie also, and the vegetable bouillon would be great as well.Thank you for sharing your ideas.
