 Following on from my Apple Pumpkin Cakes (if you haven’t tried them yet do it! They are so delicious) I thought I would post another today.

I love sneaking veggies into everything, in fact I have a whole resource on it, so its only natural I hid veggies in to sweets as well as savouries. Don’t get me wrong, my kiddies have visible slices, pieces and chucks of vegetables along with their main meal and for snacks but if I can thrown bonus stuff in why not. And lets be honest, the kiddies are pretty good about the veggies. Its the 29 year old partner that’s the problem!

    Love love love your recipes! I’ve recently had to start going wheat free, so do you know if these recipes can work with gluten free flour? πŸ™‚

    My children love these, which is great as they don’t like zucchini, and they are really easy to make….. Do you think it would work if I added a bit more zucchini with a little less milk or butter?

    My children love these which is great, as they don’t like zucchini, and they are really easy to make… Do you think they would work if I added a little more zucchini and cut back on the milk or butter?

      I would probably add more zucchini and keep the liquids the same or reduce ever so slightly as they are important fats in the recipe :).

    SOOOO GOOOOOD! I made these tonight for my little one’s first day and her new pre-school and they were so simple to make and really yummy. Hubby’s also scored on in his lunchbox and he enjoyed cleaning to bowl tonight.

    Yummo. Used yellow zucchini (it’s just what I had) unpeeled, cacao powder and rapadura for the sugar. Mixed for about 10secs. Light, fluffy, kids love them, hidden veggie, win win all around!

    These turned out really well. A great lunch box filler for the week. The kids love them!

    These are great, I have an overload of zucchinis and apples ATM, and 4 small girls with tummies (& lunchboxes) to fill, so have been having a bake up. πŸ™‚
    Thanks for such easy to follow recipes Peta.

    DELISH!
    Just whipped up a batch for lunchboxes this week. Used brown sugar and cacao. Made 12 normal size and 24 minis.
    So excited to have found your website with so many yummy looking recipes. Have your Chicken & Spinach pasta and Pie Maker quiches on the planner this week.
    Thank you Peta.

    Hooray for hidden veggies in cake! Kids are none the wiser and think they are just getting chocolate muffins. These freeze well too.
