Bake a savoury snack for Spring

We're quite in love with the sweet things in life at the Trex Bakery, but we thought we'd mix it up this month. We challenged Killian to bake a savoury snack to fuel a family outing!

Do Killian's savoury muffins with corgette and cheese live up to your expeditionary expectations? Why not bake them and find out!

Sumptuous Savoury Muffins with Courgette and Cheese!

I love baking familiar treats with a twist, especially when it's an excuse to get my daughter to eat something nutritious. These savoury muffins are super-easy and quick to bake.

They's also incredibly versatile: pack them in tupperware for a family outing, freeze them, have them for lunch, snacks, it's all good!  

Ingredients

  • 50g Trex
  • 225g self-raising flour
  • 1 small courgette
  • 100g medium strength cheddar
  • 175ml milk
  • 1 egg
  • Crushed black petter or mixed herbs (optional)

Step 1

Pre-heat your oven to 200º/180º fan/ Gas mark 6. While your oven is heating, start by adding liners to a muffin tray.

Step 2

Now grate the cheese and courgette into a large bowl. I find it easier to grate the chesse first, as otherwise the courgette will soak the grater which makes grating the cheese awkward. 

Step 3

Now add the rest of the ingredients and mix thoroughly with a wooden spoon or spatula. You'll need some elbow grease for this one as there's a lot of nutritious vegetable debris in the mix! Ensure the Trex is mixed evenly throughout.

Step 4

Take a couple of teaspoons and carefully spoon the mix into the muffin cases in your tin. Ensure that you divide the mix as evenly as you can to ensure evenly sized muffins at the end. 

Step 5

Now all there is to do is pop them in the oven for 25 minutes and get ready to enjoy some delicious savoury treats! Once they're done, allow them to cool on a wire rack. 

Top Tip: plan, plan and plan!

This is a delicious bake to eat right away while it's warm and the cheese and courgette flavours and fresh and vibrant. However, the BEST thing about this snack is that you can make loads and then freeze them for a later date. I find this a life saver because a couple of muffins and a piece of fresh fruit and some yogurt make an excellent and quick lunch for a small child.

So when you make a batch, plan out some future lunches and get a few muffins into the freezer.
