Spinach, Cheddar and Basil Muffins

If you don’t like muffins, we can’t be friends! There, I said it! Seriously, today’s recipe is all about the savoury muffin life.  These Spinach, Cheddar and Basil muffins are super easy to make and the reason why I love them the most is LUNCHBOX FILLERS!

Goodness in a Muffin

There was so much spinach in my fridge that was bound to go down the next day, it was a good thing that I was craving a savoury muffin.  I managed to calm down my anxiety as to what to fill the lunchboxes with the next day, as my grocery cupboard looked rather pathetic. Lovely good-for-you spinach, sweet fried onion, fresh basil and mature cheddar cheese make their appearance here, in this delicious muffin.  I used all purpose flour in this recipe, you can sub with gluten-free flour if you are sensitive. I have to say the addition of fresh basil in this recipe is pure magic…

Muffins for the Lunchbox

The recipe makes 12 perfectly flavourful spinach muffins, so double up if you want to make extra.  I did manage to pop 2 muffins in the freezer for the next day.  I am happy to report that a few seconds in the microwave did the trick to thaw them, and they were delicious. Needless to say, these spinach muffins are great for lunchboxes as a quick snack.
