We are deeply saddened by the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Our thoughts are with the The Royal Family at this incredibly sad time as we join the nation in mourning the loss of our beloved Sovereign.

May she rest in peace.

Non-Savory Courgette Muffins


  • 2 cups (or 240g) of Shipton Mill Organic Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1/2 cup (roughly 113g) butter or coconut oil
  • 70g *rapadura or brown sugar
  • 4-5 Tablesppons of Maple syrup (if this isn't available, add 20g more of sugar)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup pecans or walnuts chopped (optional)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • few grates of fresh nutmeg, if fresh not available, add a pinch of pre-ground
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • *3 small grated courgettes (equal to 2 cups)
  • Small muffin tin tray or tart tin tray
  • Preheat oven to 185°C/fan 175°C


  1. Combine the flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon and nutmeg and mix
  2. I like to put the nuts in the oven for 5 mins or so to crisp them up, do this now if you want.
  3. Put the sugar and butter or coconut oil in a separate large bowl and mix with electric beaters for a few minutes until fluffy
  4. Add the 2 eggs and vanilla (and maple syrup if available) and mix for a minute or so
  5. Add the flour mixture a few scoops at a time and hand mix until all combined
  6. Mix in the courgette and nuts
  7. Grease your tin and add mixture 3/4 full
  8. If baking in a tart tin, bake for 15-17 mins.  Increase a few minutes if baking larger muffins and check


* Rapadura is a unrefined sugar which is a brown colour.

*I have varied this recipe by using 1 cup of mashed ripe banana + 1 cup grated courgette
