Here’s a snack recipe for everyone who prefers savoury over sweet – Cheese and Corn Savoury Vegan Muffins!
When you talk about snacks, 9 times out of 10, people will suggest sweet recipes. Sweet muffins, muesli bars, protein balls… But what about those people who want something savoury?
Well I’ve got you covered with these delicious muffins!
The thing I love about muffins is that they’re easy to freeze – so they’re perfect for school lunchboxes! You don’t even need to defrost them when you pack them. They defrost on their own by lunchtime. They’re also a great on the go snack or even lunch that you can easily grab from the freezer as you head out the door.
I’ve included my favourite iron and zinc booster ingredient in these Cheese and Corn Vegan Muffins – Pumpkin Seeds. These seeds are packed full of iron and zinc – two essential nutrients for your growing kids.
How to Make Cheese and Corn Savoury Vegan Muffins
Start by preheating your oven and line a muffin tin with muffin papers.
I do find that the muffins can stick to the papers sometimes when you’re making oil free ones like these. If that happens, allow them to cool fully, and you should be able to get the paper off easily. Some muffin papers are better than others, so try out some different brands if you have this problem.
Once your oven is preheated, add the dry ingredients a food processor. Process until the seeds are chopped.
Add the yoghurt and process until it forms a thick crumb.
Add in the milk, cheese and corn and process until just combined. It’s important that you don’t over process the muffin mix or it will become tough.
Spoon the mix into the prepared muffin pan and bake for around 30 minutes, until browned and cooked through.
How to Freeze Ahead Your Cheese and Corn Vegan Muffins
To freeze your muffins, simply allow them to cool. Then wrap individually in plastic wrap or paper. Then place in a large, strong zip lock bag or freezer friendly container. It’s important that you use thick zip lock bags because they keep out the freezer burn better.
The other benefit to thick zip lock bags is that you can reuse them more easily!
