Savoury Muffins


Savoury snacks are much more preferable to sweet wherever possible, as a way of reducing added refined sugar.


These muffins are great for taking on an afternoon walk, and with such great ingredients you could have them for breakfast, part of your lunch with a bowl of soup maybe, great after school for kids....


And you can alternate ingredients with whatever you have to hand: maybe swap carrot for courgette, sunflower seeds for nuts, cheddar for feta...


These are super nourishing, will give you loads of energy, have a great source of fats for cognitive and mental health, protein from eggs and yoghurt. They really are great, and delicious to top it all!
