Delicious savoury muffins packed full of vegetables like spinach and peppers; perfect for a family lunch or a kids afternoon snack!
I don’t know what it is about this time of year but it always makes me crave big fluffy savoury muffins. Packed with cheesy deliciousness I guess they are the ultimate comfort food that you can grab and go at any time!
As well as lots of delicious cheese I’ve packed these muffins with spinach and red peppers too, cause you know I like to sneak some veggies into as many recipes as possible! I also have one secret ingredient that takes these muffins to a whole new level – the humble stock cube! It really helps to add a burst of flavour and seasoning to these muffins so don’t leave it out!
As well as being super delicious, these savoury muffins are really easy to make. Everything can be mixed in one bowl by hand so there’s not special equipment required.
They taste so good warm from the oven but are equally good cold too. I like to have them for lunch, served with some salad or veggies and they’re perfect for popping into lunchboxes too and they also make a great after-school snack for kids.
