Recipe: Spinach and cheese muffins

Savoury muffins are always a great idea – they’re both filling and nutritious.

Makes 12


500 g Snowflake Savoury Muffin Easymix

1 extra-large egg

125 ml (½ cup) cooking oil

375 ml (1 ½ cups) milk

150 g spinach

1 ml cayenne pepper

250 ml (100 g) grated Cheddar cheese



Steam spinach until wilted. Drain, chop coarsely and set aside.

Preheat oven to 180˚C. Place easymix into a mixing bowl. Add cayenne pepper, cheese and spinach.

Whisk egg, oil and milk before adding to dry ingredients. Mix lightly with a spoon until just combined. Do not overmix.

Spoon mixture into a well-greased muffin pan.

Bake for about 20 minutes or until golden brown. Turn out onto a wire rack to cool.
