These are an excellent way to use up all that zucchini that has threatened to take over your garden. I took these to work and they were a huge hit. A variety of herbs would work. Try oregano or thyme for a little variety.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease 18 muffin tins with butter or shortening.
  2. Beat eggs in a bowl. Stir in milk and oil.
  3. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Mix dry ingredients into egg mixture, just until moistened. Batter should not be completely smooth.

  5. Fill greased muffin tins ¾ full. Sprinkle each with cheese.
  6. Bake 18-20 minutes or until done. Remove from pan and serve warm.

excellent! I substituted soy flour for some of the white flour. Also added sage and oregano to the fresh basil. Very clean tasting, will make again!

Very quick and easy. A different way to use up zucchini. I only used 3 tablespoons of basil, and it seemed enough. Best eaten warm out of the oven!

Great recipe for the lunchbox. Easy to make. I used a za'atar mix of herbs rather than basil, and soy milk but the recipe still worked well and tasted great.
