Zucchini Banana Cocoa Muffins

14 May

Yup that is a bit of a mouthful of a name.  I had some over-ripe bananas and some extra zucchini that I hadn’t got around to using.  A little searching on pinterest (are we ready to start use “pinteresting”?) and I came across The First Mess, which is another brilliant food blog full of yummy veggie and vegan food.  These brownies have me thinking of doing a vegan June…

I didn’t have all the ingredients for the original so made a few changes.  They are really moist and I am looking forward to my mid-morning snack every day this week.

  • 2 cup spelt flour

p.s. I really need to start baking things aside from muffins so I can take prettier food pictures.  It is the only reason for baking right?
