These muffins contain nothing but highly nutritious ingredients. They are not only totally guilt-free but also extraordinarily tasty.

Purple corn kernels have a deep purple colour. After milling the corn kernels, you are left with vibrant looking milled flour and a fun ingredient to use in muffins.  Purple corn is highly nutritious and often classified as “super food”, with many benefits listed such as containing anti-inflammatory properties, antioxidants and flavonoids.

You might be slightly surprised to see courgette (also known as zucchini) listed as one of the ingredients in this recipe. We believe that having greens all day round is very beneficial and with its firm pale flesh, courgettes, give the muffins great structure.
These muffins are great for breakfast or as a snack at any time of the day.
