Breakfast and eggs

Savoury muffins

These muffins are packed full of flavour and are lovely, and moist. They taste fantastic with smoked salmon and a salad for a filling meal, or on their own as a quick grab-and-go option.

Recipe: Savoury muffins

Prep and cooking time: 20 mins

Serves: 4


  • 6 eggs
  • 200g ground almonds
  • 60g fine oats
  • 60ml milk
  • 50g butter, melted and cooled
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground paprika or dried chilli flakes (optional)
  • 1 large handful kale, finely sliced
  • 1 large green pepper, finely diced
  • 5 spring onions, finely sliced
  • 100g feta, crumbled


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/200°C fan.
  2. Generously butter a 12 cup muffin tin or line it with baking paper and set aside (butter will help to crisp the outside of the muffin – this is how we prefer ours).
  3. Break the eggs into a large bowl and mix well with a fork or whisk.
  4. Add the ground almonds, oats, milk, cooled butter, baking soda, baking powder, paprika (if using), generously season with salt and pepper, and mix well.
  5. Using a large spoon, lightly mix in the kale, pepper, spring onion, and feta. Evenly divide the mixture into the muffin tin and bake for 15 minutes.
