Healthy Cheddar Cheese & Red Pepper Muffins Recipe!

Hello lovelies,

I was sitting looking for inspiration on what to bake next when I got this sudden urge to make something savoury. Not anything like a dinner but a savoury snack that can be kept for a few days and be eaten whenever & wherever I like.

That’s when I came across a recipe that used both cheddar cheese and red peppers to make a batch of muffins. As you can imagine, that got my creative juices flowing and I just had to make them for myself.

I’ve mentioned this a few times now but I’m a savoury girl through and through, give me anything and I mean anything with cheese on or in and I’ll be your best friend for life. So, I knew instantly that these muffins would be the savoury snack I’d been craving.

I followed the basics steps of this recipe {https://www.amummytoo.co.uk/red-pepper-and-cheese-savoury-muffins-perfect-packed-lunch-treat/} but made it my own by taking away or adding ingredients. You know me, I like to have a play about and see what works best and todays muffins have become a firm favourite in my household.

Not only is it me itching to eat the entire lot in one sitting, it’s also my family who helped demolish them – that’s when you know a recipes good.

So if you love the heavenly combination of cheese and red peppers, you have no choice but to try these asap! Believe me, you’ll LOVE.

  • Now, add in 150g of cheddar cheese, 2 chopped sweet red peppers and 2tsp of oregano.(TIP: the mixture will look as though it’s split at this point, don’t worry, it all comes together eventually).
  • Fold in the 350g of plain flour, the mixture will become stodgy.
  • Using an ice cream scoop or tablespoon, scoop the mixture into the muffin cases.
  • With the remaining 50g of cheese, sprinkle the cheese over the top of the muffins.
  • Place the muffins into the oven for around 25 minutes, until the tops begin to brown.

That’s your Cheddar Cheese & Red Pepper Muffins prepared, baked and ready for you to enjoy!

Now I know it’s impossible to smell these muffins through my blog BUT you’ve got to believe me when I say these muffins smell absolutely gorgeous. Whilst these were cooking, the whole house was filled with the smell of freshly cooked muffins and I blooming loved it.

So if your looking for a reason to make these, let the smell be one and the taste be the other. I promise, if your into savoury snacks like todays, you’ll be delighted with these. I’m actually obsessed and already planning to make another batch.

Let me know in the comments below if you make these yourself and if you do, what your thoughts were on them. Did these blow you away?

Sending you all tons of love & hugs as always,

Elle xo
