Zucchini and Cheddar Muffins

This is another recipe shared by Marian in the South Arm Cooking Club for Seniors. This is Marian’s way to incorporate vegetables into her daughters’ diet. Marian also has fussy eaters in her household like mine.


These Zucchini and Cheddar Muffins are moist and cheesy. They are savoury and not sweet. You can replace the zucchinis with carrots. These savoury muffins are perfect for lunch boxes.


  • 2 medium size zucchinis, trim ends and grate coarsely
  • 125 gram cheddar, grated
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoons ground black pepper
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 3/4 cup soy milk
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted

Please note that the baking soda should not be in the photo above.

    Yummy looking muffins. I need to make a batch to have with soup or chili. The picture shows baking soda but the recipe lists baking powder. Will either work?

      Hi AsiaYoung, the baking soda should not be in the picture. It was accidentally included as it’s common to have both baking powder and baking soda in a baking recipe. Thanks for pointing that out.

    Those look delicious. Can I use non-fat milk instead of soy milk?
