20p Courgette and Chocolate Muffins

Courgette and Chocolate Muffins

I’m a big fan of a bargain and these courgettes were definitely that!  I popped into the supermarket for some bread and milk on my way home from work one evening this week and spied a three pack of courgettes in the chiller for the bargain price of 20p.  I couldn’t leave them there could I?!  I thought I could make some ‘healthy’ muffins with them.  I put that in quote marks because these ‘healthy’ muffins have a pile of sugar in them!

You will need:

3 medium eggs, 100ml sunflower oil, 75ml water, 250g caster sugar, 225g grated courgettes, 1tsp ground cinnamon, 225g self-raising flour, 30g cocoa powder and 125g raisins.

Preheat the oven to 190°C and line a 12 hole muffin case with paper cases.  In a large bowl, mix together the eggs, oil, sugar and courgettes.  Add the flour, cocoa, cinnamon and raisins.  Mix gently.  Spoon the mixture into the muffin cases until they are about 2/3 full.  Bake in the oven for 20 minutes until the muffins have risen and a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean.
