    Courgette and gruyère muffins

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 20 minutes
    • Total time: 35 minutes 35 minutes

    Makes: 12


    200g Duchy Originals from Waitrose organic brown self-raising flour
    1⁄2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
    50g Waitrose LOVE Life four 
grain porridge
    1 tbsp finely chopped fresh rosemary
    200g coarsely grated courgettes, squeezed to remove excess juice
    1⁄2 tsp ground black pepper
    50g gruyère, coarsely grated
    2 eggs
    170ml fat-free Greek yogurt
    3 tbsp olive oil 


    1. Heat the oven to 200°C, gas mark 6. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, bicarbonate of soda, porridge, rosemary, courgettes, pepper and three- quarters of the cheese. Make a well in the centre.
    2. In a separate bowl, beat together the eggs, yogurt and olive oil. Pour into the courgette mixture and gently stir together but don’t over-mix. Don’t worry if the mixture seems a little dry, because the courgettes will release liquid as they cook.

    3. Spoon into 12 muffin cases and scatter over the reserved cheese. Bake for 18-20 minutes, until risen, firm and lightly browned. Best eaten on the day of baking. 

    COOK’S TIP: Try adding a large handful of frozen or fresh sweetcorn kernels to the mixture.
