It's official. We struggle to get enough veggies in our day, everyday! My new favourite past time has been trialling inventive snacks that I can pass on to our lovely clients. Oh...and that I can also indulge in myself! Whilst enjoying a Friday night in recently and enjoying some 90's smash hits after a busy work week, I discovered these. Enjoy, Ash xx
100g semidried tomatoes or grilled capsicum
2 cups wholemeal raising flour
1 large zucchini, grated
1 large carrot, grated
1/2 cup spring onions finely sliced
1/2 cup coarsely grated cheese (You're choice)
1/2 cup skim milk
3 eggs, lightly whisked
60g olive oil margarine
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp dried basil
Shake of salt
Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Spray 12 medium muffin pans with oil to grease. Literally throw all ingredients into a big bowl whilst dancing to Michael Jackson and combine well.
Spoon the mixture into prepared tins and bake in the pre-heated oven for 20 minutes until golden and cooked through. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

As a lighter snack have one of these with a cup of tea. For a bit more protein eat your muffin with a 250mL cup of coffee, glass of milk or chai for a snack worth about 220-250 calories/924-1050kJ kilojoules.
Suggestions: Heat in the microwave, especially during these cooler winter months!
