Make mine a (GF) muffin

Training: Bike 31km After a celebratory Christmas and a fun-filled New Years, today was all about finding routine. And balance. We took a long bike ride, ate a healthy lunch, finally organised our new internet connection and caught up with friends for a farewell dinner. But no doubt the highlight of my day was breakfast. IMG_3905 Yes breakfast. For what better way to start the day, than with a batch of fresh, warm, savoury muffins. IMG_3890 IMG_3891 When I woke up this morning, the cooler temperatures had me yearning for a warm breakfast. However, bacon and eggs did not sound that appealing and I have been overdosing on porridge lately. Rather, savoury muffins, eaten fresh out of the oven, were just the thing I was craving. So quick to prepare, the house smelled amazing as these little bundles cooked in the oven. IMG_3892 IMG_3893 Packed to the brim with taste, and enjoyed with a cup of tea. IMG_3894 Just the breakfast I was after. And, once cooled, these muffins  keep well in an airtight container in the pantry so that you can also enjoy them at lunch and afternoon tea! IMG_3902 IMG_3903 IMG_3904  You must make a batch of these sometime soon. Seriously. GF Savoury herb muffins (makes 12)

  • 2 tbs onion relish
  • 2 cups GF self raising flour (or you could use regular SR flour)
  • 100g reduced-fat feta, crumbled
  • 2 cups baby spinach, chopped
  • 1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 cup grated reduced-fat cheddar cheese
  • 1 tbs dried thyme
  • 1 tbs dried parsley
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup low-fat milk
  1. Preheat oven to 160Β°C. Lightly grease a muffin tray or 12 x silicone muffin moulds.
  2. Combine onion relish, flour, feta, spinach, tomatoes and cheese in a bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine herbs, eggs and milk.
  4. Add egg mixture to flour mixture and stir until combined.
  5. Spoon mixture into prepared muffin tins and bake for 25-30 minutes or until cooked when tested with a skewer.

Variation: You could also add olives or bacon to the muffin batter, or grated carrot / zucchini for an extra veggie kick. What about you? What is your favourite warm breakfast? Happy Baking πŸ™‚

  1. Oh, this reminds me of the savoury mushroom, hazelnut, and thyme muffins I made a few months back, and how I always meant to try a cheesy version afterwards! My favourite warm breakfast is oatbran with peanut butter and chocolate πŸ˜€

  2. Although I love me some oats and nothing really satisfies me quite the same, I love homemade waffles. My mom has a waffle maker and when our whole family is together we all sit around and wait patiently for our waffle to be done. Yum!

  3. They look so yummy. Unfortunately Kevin doesn't like savoury muffins so I don't tend to make them. Amy makes a nice cheese & corn muffin but it's rather fattening :-).
