Healthier savoury muffins, yes please!

Healthier savoury muffins, made with bacon and cheese, need I say more?

For all those who favour savoury tastes over sweet – here’s my muffin recipe with bacon, cheese, tomato and onion.

I love muffins as much as anyone, so I had to come up with a healthier version, that of course, still taste great.

This savoury muffin recipe uses a mix of oat flour and almond meal, instead of traditional white flour. It also has olive oil instead of inflammatory vegetable oil.

I think ordinary, full fat milk tastes best, but  you could use an alternative. If you do, I’d recommend something with a very light flavour, like oat milk.

These savoury muffins are a delicious healthy snack, or a great a brekkie on the run.

They’re perfect to meal prep on the weekend. You can eat one or two fresh from the oven and then freeze the rest for easy breakfasts through the week.


I like to make a batch of these muffins to have with a bowl of this BROCCOLI & TOMATO SOUP
