Cheesy Chive Courgette Muffins

Updated: May 9

I don't really make a lot of savoury bakes but I had some courgettes left and my husband who loves cheese and mustard was working from home so I thought I would make him some savoury muffins!


Well they were a success as he told me they tasted great in fact when I went back to take my photos for my blog this was all I had to take a photo of ......




They are simple to make and a tasty mid morning snack or for a light lunch. The cheese, chives and mustard pair really well and the courgette makes them really moist.



It's a great way to use up an odd courgette you may have lying around in the fridge.


Start by pre-heating the oven to 200 degrees centigrade (180 fan) then place 8 muffin liners in a muffin tray.



Grate the courgette and place in a large mixing bowl and add the chives (keep back a few for decoration),



Then add the grated cheese, flour, mustard, salt, pepper, oil, milk and eggs.



Mix until fully combined and no flour is visible and divide equally between the 8 muffin liners.




Sprinkle the remaining chives on the top of the muffins.



Bake for 25 minutes.

Quick and easy. I made these today, very savoury and would be perfect with soup. I'll try adding some cayenne next time for a little kick.
