These cheesy Thermomix savoury muffins are so quick to make! This makes them a great lunch, or afternoon tea.
They freeze and defrost well and my kids love them, so they’re something I often have in the lunch box drawer of my freezer.
Just two simple Thermomix Steps and these Savoury Muffins are in the Oven!
Please note, the full recipe is down the bottom.
After turning your oven on to 180C to pre-heat and preparing your muffin tray, place the first lot of ingredients into your thermal cooker. Blend 5 seconds/speed 6/MC on:
Salt and Pepper
Next, you add flour, corn kernels and baking powder. Combine 10 seconds/reverse/speed 4/MC on.
Once that’s done, it’s just a case of pouring the batter into the muffin tray/s and baking for 20 minutes. So easy!
Thermomix Cheesy Savoury Muffins FAQs
Can I make them Dairy Free?
I think that a lot of the appeal of these muffins is their cheesiness! That said, I think they would be ok subbing coconut yoghurt for the Greek yoghurt and replacing the cheese with a good dose of nutritional yeast.
I haven’t tried this variation and that’s why I haven’t included a dairy free variation on the recipe, so please let me know how you go if you try it!
Can I make them Gluten Free?
Yes. You can sub the flour for gluten free flour. The best gluten flour pre-mixed flour we have found is ORGRAN Gluten Free All-Purpose Plain Flour.
We have tested several Bexta recipes with a number of brands of gluten free flour and have always had the most consistent results with ORGRAN.
Can I leave out the spinach?
I’ve included a bit of spinach for nutrition in these muffins. The taste of it is undetectable. However, if your kids are ‘allergic’ to any signs of green in their food, you can leave it out.
What’s the best way to freeze these Thermomix savoury muffins?
For things like this, I space them out on a flat tray and put in the freezer. Once frozen, transfer to a large container or ziplock bag. Freezing on the tray first will prevent them from sticking together once frozen.
