Spinach and feta muffins
Serves: 12 – 15 muffins
The boys have loved these muffins ever since Oliver – and then Tom – were capable of eating muffins.
Until last weekend however, it has been awhile since I’ve cooked a batch.
The good news is that good things never change and the boys were just as enamoured with them as they were the first time they had them; warm with some butter and they are literally savoury heaven.
They’re great the next day either and tick all the boxes as a healthy, filling, lunch-box treat.
And they certainly aren’t just for kids.
Try them and enjoy.
Though do yourself a favour and have at least one warm with butter.
