Whole wheat and veggie savory muffins are the perfect breakfast or evening snacks option, full of health, goodness and deliciousness!
Some days back when I got a comment from Avanti and Binpin asking for some savory baked recipes, I realized I don’t have much on the blog, though I do a lot of savory baking. This whole wheat and veggie savory muffins is something which I make very often at home.
These are just perfect for weekend breakfasts or even weekend evening snacks, I would say. Whole wheat and vegetables make these muffins super healthy, and they are so delicious to eat. Dip them in some home made salsa or sauce, and you have a great snack to munch along. Savory baking is something I really enjoy doing because most often these baked dishes go off as lunchbox options to school and work. The muffins stay really fresh for a long time, and if you are looking for something hot, then just warm them up a bit in the microwave and dig into them. Another big advantage of baking savory dishes is that you can add in anything you want into it. A little of this and a dash of that, and you have a whole new recipe in hand!
I have realised that I usually just do that. I just put in ingredients and create something new which really appeals the taste buds of everyone in the family. Once you get the basic process of baking correct, it is like an open field. You can just mix match ingredients and bake different dishes to suit your taste. A few savory recipes which I have tried out and really enjoyed include savory semolina cake, whole wheat and oats pesto bread, zucchini, corn and smoked cheese muffins, and ham and cheese muffins! Have you tried any of these yet? I am sure you will love them as much as I do!
