Kid Friendly Muffins

Kid Friendly Muffins

 

How many Mum’s out there have fussy eaters or Kids who are simply too ‘busy playing’ to eat or are just going through one of their “Oh I will only eat this for the next 6 weeks phase?” Well that’s my Little Gremlin. Fruit, cheese and the favourite….tomatoes are the flavour of the month. Which is fine, but I like to offer a bit of variety in the Kids diet….how can they eat the same thing day in day out and still love it? It boggles me!

 

It got me thinking, what can I make him that is nutritious, wholesome and tasty? A MUFFIN! What kid doesn’t eat muffins? So I had a look at what was in the fridge and whipped these savoury muffins up in less than 10 mins.

 

What you’ll need:

 

2 cups – self raising flour, sifted

 

80gms – melted butter, cooled

 

1 egg

 

1 cup milk

 

½ cup continental parsley

 

2 Sausages or meat of your choice

 

1 cup – finely chopped spinach

 

1 spring onion

 

200gms – Feta cheese, I used Danish Feta

 

8 cherry tomatoes, roughly chopped

 

10 Kalamata olives, sliced

 

Sprinkle of pepper to taste

 

 

 

How to do it:

 

Preheat the oven to 200C (fan forced) and prep a 12 muffin tray with light cooking spray.

 

Sift flour into a big bowl. In a separate bowl combine; parsley, spinach, spring onion, fetta, tomatoes, olives and pepper, mix until combined. Once combined fold the mixture through the flour.

 

Add butter, egg and milk and fold in until just combine. (The trick with muffins is not to over mix).

 

Once the mixture has come together, simply spoon the mixture into muffin tin. I like my muffins top heavy so I filled them up to the top of the tin haha. You could sprinkle some more feta on top if you liked before putting them in the oven.

 

Then bake for 15-20mins (depending on your oven) until nice and golden on top.

 

Let them cool in the tin for 10 minutes before you remove them to the wire rack.

 

They’re great fresh out the oven (obviously once cooled slightly), or as a snack the next day, eaten cold or heated up. They’re a nice healthy snack the kids will enjoy and you know exactly what’s in them.

 

And remember these can be adapted to whatever suits your little ones tastes – or yours! Believe me you will be munching on them too!

 

What’s flavour of the month at your place?
