Chive Muffins

READY IN: 38mins
Recipe by Whisper

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.

Top Review by Jenny Sanders

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.
