When it comes to party food, especially kids birthday party food I always like to ensure there are a few ‘healthier’ options available. Recently when it came time to plan the menu for our baby boy’s first birthday party, amongst a sea of mars bar slice, frosted cupcakes and caramel popcorn I wanted to make sure there was a couple of appealing healthier options available. Normally I turn to my trusty zucchini slice recipe, but for something a little different I have been experimenting with savoury muffin recipes and decided to give this one a go.
The thing I love about this base recipe, is that it’s really quick and easy to put together, and you can add just about any vegetable combination you like. When I’ve made this in the past I have added ham or bacon, but given we already had plenty of carnivore options, I decided to make them meat free.
These Savoury Vegetable Muffins are also a great recipe to make with a little helper. There is lots of mixing and sifting involved, and you it’s such a fail safe recipe it’s ok if a little extra flour or other ingredients are added along the way.
These were a big hit at our party, with only a few leftover at the end (these also freeze really well – winning!). Given they were competing with honey joys and frosted cupcakes on the same cake stand, that is a pretty good effort in my opinion!
