Day to day, things can get a little chaotic to say the least. Time runs away, mealtimes are sometimes snatched on the run, and before you know it it’s time for the next serving of wholesome goodness. (Kids really like to eat hey!) So creating healthy savoury snacks that are ready to go, on the go, is really a lifesaver when the going gets… chaotic!
Check out my recipe for Zucchini & Pepita Muffins, the perfect savoury muffin treat to enjoy as a mid-day snack, as a savoury breakfast or even as a lunch with a side of veges. Try them halved and toasted, with bacon and egg in the middle. Or sliced open and drizzled with honey. We love them dipped in soup at dinner time, or in place of hamburger buns for mini burgers! And you can add some chopped up veggies, cooked bacon, sun-dried tomatoes, feta, or olives for additions to savoury muffins – or change them to a sweet muffin by adding a couple of tablespoons of honey and a couple of handfuls of sultanas and some mixed spices! Play with the flavours and see what you come up with.
Best of all, these are dairy free (if made with coconut oil), nut free, grain free and gluten free. Great for school lunch boxes, and they freeze well.
Note: This recipe makes 12 large muffins. I cook them in “If You Care” muffin cups, and never have a problem with them sticking. (These paper cups are bleach free and non-toxic.)
