We are very lucky in that both Oliver and Leo will eat pretty much everything we serve them and that they tend to prefer fruit over sweet foods. Recently when the lovely people at Organix got in touch and asked if we wanted to try a recipe or two of theirs we jumped at the chance.
The first recipe we tried was their Savoury Muffin Recipe and when I first looked at the amount of ingredients involved I was a little concerned that the boys would struggle firstly with the making and then secondly the flavour and taste of them once cooked, however I needn’t have worried.
The Muffins were so easy to make and the kids loved making them and then eating them and here’s how you can make them too.
What You Need:
- 225g self-raising flour
- 1 small carrot
- 2 spring onions
- 1/2 red pepper
- 2 tbps sweetcorn
- 100g mature cheddar
- 175ml milk (or dairy free alternative)
- 1 large egg
- 50ml olive oil
How To Make:
- Step 1
Preheat the oven to 200°C (Gas mark 6/400°F). Lightly brush 10 moulds of a 12 hole muffin tin with oil.
- Step 2
Measure and sift the flour into a large mixing bowl.
- Step 3
Prepare the vegetables – grate the carrot, finely chop the spring onion, de-seed and finely chop the red pepper. Add all of the vegetables to the flour. Grate the cheddar cheese, add it to the bowl and mix well to combine.
- Step 4
In a separate bowl, mix together the milk, egg and olive oil. Add the wet mixture to the dry ingredients and mix well. Divide the mixture between the 10 oiled muffin tin moulds.
- Step 5
Bake for about 20 minutes until cooked through and golden brown.
- Step 6
- Cool on a wire rack.
Then all you have to do is eat these delicious treats. These are definitely something we will be making again when we have a party of event that needs that something different. I total they took less then an hour to make.
