Toddler Snacks - Zucchini, Corn & Bacon muffins from MissusBarnes.comHidden Veg. . .it’s that age old struggle. Please don’t get scurvy, eat something healthy! So these little Zucchini, Corn & Bacon muffins  are a great way to sneak some veg in if you have a fussy eater like me! I hate my veggies 🙁 But i’ll happily scoff these, as will my son – who loves his veg.

This is a very forgiving recipe and I have been known to swap in sun dried tomatoes, olives, feta, chorizo and pretty much any diced up semi hard veggie I have in the fridge. So just because the recipe says Zucchini, Corn & Bacon muffins doesn’t mean you have to turn them out. I’d love to hear your different combinations for these!

These Feature in my Super Snack Prep – so check out some of the other recipes to feed your little ones!
