Healthy Savoury Muffins

Posted by Valeria Ramirez on

Savoury muffins are a great way to pack nutrition into your child's (or your own) lunchbox in a very tasty and portable way. These tasty little morsels can be made ahead of time and frozen for extra convenience. Get creative with the flavours to mix things up. I've added a couple of options to get you started.

Healthy Savoury Muffins

Prep Time: 20 min | Cook Time: 20-25 min | Total Time: | Serves: 12


2 cups spelt flour (substitute with gluten-free flour for gluten free version)
2 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup grated tasty cheese
1/2 cup finely diced ham (optional)
1 1/2 cups of chopped cooked vegetables (carrots, peas, corn, capsicum, mushrooms, cherry tomatoes etc)
150g butter, melted (or coconut oil)
1 cup milk of your choice
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tbsp parsley, chopped (optional)
Salt to taste, you could even use the Alg Seaweed Salt to boost the nutritional value


  1. Prepare your vegetables. You can sauté some carrot, onion, corn, and peas. Or roast up some capsicum, mushrooms, and cherry tomatoes. Whatever your child likes, you know best.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C fan-forced).
  3. Line a 12 cup muffin tray with muffin liners.
  4. In a bowl, place the flour, cheese, vegetables, and ham.
  5. In a separate bowl, combine the egg, milk, and butter.
  6. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
  7. Pour into muffin tray and bake for 20-25 minutes until just golden.
  8. Store in an airtight container for up to seven days, or in the freezer for up to three months, but we find these babies don't last for long.

Note: You could try vegan cheese, or feta if using a roast vegetable combination.
