Whilst trying to think of yummy snacks for Alfred, that we could take on days out and to fill in the gaps at home, I discovered these savoury muffins. They are by no means an original creation of my own, but after some recipe research, this is what I came up with. They are added salt and sugar free and you can put any fillings in that you want - raspberries, spinach, cheese, banana... you name it! The best part is that they are so delicious, the whole family can enjoy them!
225g self raising flour
55ml olive oil (can also use coconut oil etc.)
Filling and flavours of your choice - for the muffins pictured, I used 1 grated carrot, 1 grated courgette and 95g of grated cheddar cheese. (I should add, that if you are doing a savoury filling, then add a good amount of ground black pepper. It really finishes it off!)
Pre heat the oven to 180 degrees (fan assisted)
Mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl (flour, cheese, grated vegetables)
Add the oil, milk and egg. Mix everything together.
Grease the holes in a muffin tray.
Evenly dollop the mixture into the muffin holes.
Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes (I usually do 22 minutes, to be precise).
Leave to cool in the tray, before transferring to a cooling rack.
