Savoury Cheese Muffins
When my friend brought these Savoury Cheese Muffins to a picnic they were a big hit! When I asked her for the recipe she explained it was from her mum and sent me a a pic of the recipe written up 25 years ago in her old recipe book.
Some of the measurements were missing, including the amount of flour, but her mum suggested to just add enough flour to make a semi thick mixture : )
As usual mums back then never wrote down recipes, they just went by look, smell and taste.
This is my adapted, ad libbed version which I recently took to a picnic and they went down a treat!
Note the dried mint goes perfectly with the cheeses and gives the muffin a lightness and lift.
This recipe uses spelt flour, aluminium-free baking powder, bicarb soda, extra virgin olive oil, black pepper, which you can grab from my one-stop-favourite-shop wholefood online store, The Wholefood Collective.
