My work colleague brought these in to work one day and they were devoured so I had to have the recipe. It’s a while ago since we had them so I can’t really remember if mine were similar. They didn’t rise as I expected them to but they still tasted yum. I probably put too many vegetables in it, so the mixture may have been too dense. These would be great for a kids lunch box, a great way to get them to eat vegetables as well. The original recipe is from: http://www.rte.ie/lifestyle/food/recipes/2012/0910/3273-oh-so-good-cheesy-veggie-savoury-muffins/
250g plain flour
2 tsp baking powder
2 eggs (small)
130 ml milk
4 tblsp olive oil
1 cup chopped veg (I used peppers, corn, tomatoes, shallots and courgette)
1 cup chopped greens (rocket/spinach)
1 cup grated cheddar
1 cup grated parmesan
Salt and pepper to season
Sprinkle of seeds of your choice (I use chia seeds)
1. Heat a frying pan and spray with the oil spray. Saute the chopped veg (not greens) for 5 minutes and set aside.
2. Sieve flour, salt and baking powder in a bowl, make a hollow in the centre.
3. Mix milk, eggs and oil in a bowl and all to the hollow and mix gently.
4. Add all the veg, salt and pepper and cheese and mix.
5. Grease a muffin tin and fill the wells 2/3 the way up.
6. Sprinkle the seeds over each of the muffins. Bake for 15-20 minutes (check if cooked by inserting a skewer into the centre of one of the muffins and if the skewer comes out clean they are cooked, if not cook for another 5 minutes). They should be golden brown on top. Best eaten hot.
