A heathly and easy to make savoury muffin. This comes from my "Annabelle Cooks" recipe book. You can make texas, regular,or mini muffins, depending on how you want to serve them:) ****Oooops!!!! Thanks to a very observant chef I had missed out the baking powder. This has now been corrected in the ingredients list. My apologies to anyone who has made them without this essential ingredient!!!! I must have had a 'senior' moment :)
- 200 ml vegetable oil
- 1 egg
- 2 cups milk
- 2 cups fresh spinach (packed firmly)
- 4 2⁄3 cups plain flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 150 g diced feta cheese
- Pre heat the oven to 190'C fan bake or 200'C regular bake.
- Put the oil, egg, milk and spinach into a a food processor and process until finely chopped.
- In another bowl mix all the dry ingredients together and then fold through the feta cheese until it is coated.
- Add the spinach mixture and combine until just mixed.
- Place in greased muffin tins and fan bake for approx 25 minutes.
- Remove from oven and leave in pans for a few minutes before placing on a wire rack to cool.

- *Note: you can also add in some chopped sundried tomato, chopped spring onions or chopped red or green capsicums to vary the flavour.
These recipe made 24 muffins (double what I expected) . The mixture was very sticky, and I wasn'y overwhelmed by the flavour... they were rather bland. I put in some chilli flakes to. I'm not sure if I would bother making this recipe again.
These had great flavour. Not too spinach-y. I did however make one unexpected change. I used dried mint flakes instead of nutmeg as I didn't have any. The way the recipe is now they make a dense muffin but with the addition of the (accidentally omitted) baking powder these will be a a much lighter treat. I will be making them again.
I don't make muffins all that often and found this recipe very straight forward. I omitted the nutmeg as I didn't have any on hand. Absolutely delicious :yummy: Thanks for posting.
