To start, I used a food processor to grate the courgette. The I squeezed the water out of it with my hands and put it in a mixing bowl. I added golden caster sugar, orange zest and lemon zest.
Then I added vegetable oil, eggs and yoghurt. I mixed everything together.
In a separate bowl I measured out golden linseeds (also called flaxseeds), salt, self raising flour and wholemeal self raising flour.
I added the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mixed together.
I put the batter into muffin cases in a tray and baked for 25 minutes until golden brown.
I’ve been enjoying these Courgette, Linseed & Lemon Muffins from breakfast and have made a couple more batches since. My boyfriend really loves them too and handing him a couple of these in the morning stops any unhealthy “McBreakfasts”!
