Rebecca made a video tutorial for the recipe as well as writing the steps out in detail to allow people to follow along at home.

The recipe calls for a carrot, zucchini, some baby spinach, corn and canned peas and makes 12 regular sized muffins.

Home cooks will also need to have plant-based milk, Greek yoghurt and cheese on hand to make the tasty lunchbox fillers, she said. 

The recipe indicates the muffins are easy to throw together once the prep-work, grating the vegetables, has been done.

The mum simply mixes the vegetables with her olive oil, yoghurt and milk before adding her flout and baking powder.

She then mixes the ingredients together, pops it into a muffin tin and bakes at 120C for 20 minutes.

The muffins have five vegetables inside and are also high in protein, Rebecca explained
