Savoury Butternut Pumpkin Muffins

Your morning tea is about a get a serious make over with my savoury butternut pumpkin muffins! I really love trying to squeeze in extra veg in different ways at snack times because, in all honesty, even though I'm a nutritionist, raw carrot sticks just don't do it for me.

Healthy savoury butternut pumpkin muffins

You can pretty much customise these savoury butternut pumpkin muffins however you like. I top mine with feta and spring onions with a good sprinkling chilli but you could add rosemary or some caramelised red onion for something a little bit fancy!

Pre heat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.Place everything except feta and spring onions into a stand mixer fitted with a paddle. Combine altogether very well.Spoon equal portions into a patty pan lined muffin tray. You need patty pans, I find the bottoms break up a little if you don't.Top with feta and spring onions.
