Carrot and Zucchini Muffins 001

I’ll definitely never win Masterchef but I do okay in the kitchen. The one thing I love to do is collect and cook recipes that are not only simple to make but that I know will turn out every single time. I’ve been making these muffins for years and I promise, you’ll be pleased with the results. They are lovely and moist, freeze beautifully (which make them a winner for lunchboxes) and the fact that it’s an easy way to get the kids to eat some more vegies, well that’s just vegie smuggling at it’s best!
