Wholemeal courgette and lemon muffins

Delicious, healthy and super easy to make, these wholemeal muffins come out wonderfully moist, thanks to the addition of courgettes. Simply combine all the ingredients and bake until golden.

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 4, 180ºC, fan 160ºC. Line a 12-hole muffin tin with paper muffin cases. Put all the ingredients except the oats in a large bowl and whisk for 2-3 mins until well combined. 
  2. Divide between the muffin cases. Scatter over the rolled oats. Bake for 30-35 mins until risen, golden and cooked through. Leave to cool in the tin for 10 mins, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
