I don't ice these as they are yummy enough as they are.

  • What an amazing great to sneak in veggies!


  • Maybe add grated beetroot, carrot or zucchini would be great additions to these


  • I love hidden veg recipes :)


  • I would dull down the veggies a bit


  • those sneaky little vege additions


  • Thank you for this. A great way of adding extra veggies to their diet. Still will not pass the food police at school, so keeping this for non school times.


  • Interesting combination of ingredients, savoury and sweet


  • Im tempted to make a recipe lile this but always hold back im curious to see..


  • Wow i love that it is homemade and has veggies in it who would have imagined a combination sounds lovely


  • sounds yum. Love the hidden veg.


  • Love love ❤️ these. Love the list of ingredients. Love the addition of veggies with choc chips. The kids won’t be able to resist and no idea they’re eating veggies

  • Anything that hides something good is always a good thing. My grand daughter will love these as anything with the shape of muffins/patty cakes are cakes to her. No matter what is in them.


  • What a great idea. I’m definitely going to mane these for all my kids.
