These go well with dinner rather than bread or rolls for a change. They're quite tasty and a great way to use the chives in your garden.

I snatched a last handful of chives from the garden today before the snow was supposed to fly, so I could make these. I'm sorry I didn't find them earlier in the season. They are so good! I used whole wheat flour as I almost always do, and butter rather than margarine. I also used twice as much pepper, coarsely crushed. I got 12 muffins and thought the batter was if anything a little stiff. They were done in 16 minutes, and were the perfect accompaniment to a lamb stew.

A great way to use chives to make an interesting dinner muffin however we only got 8 muffins out of the recipe, but I may have filled my muffin tins too much. I also thought that the batter was too wet when I made up the recipe but the muffins came out fine -- I did cook them an 10 minutes though, but I think my oven cooks slow. Thanks for sharing.
