I am always on the lookout for healthy snacks to help fuel my long days of dancing and I found this recipe by Jamie Oliver. I made them today, they are super easy to make and delicious! Here is a link to the recipe but I have copied it out in case you want to quick scan:
- olive oil
- 600 g sweet potatoes or ½ a butternut squash
- 4 spring onions
- 1-2 fresh red chillies
- 6 large free-range eggs
- 3 tablespoons cottage cheese
- 250 g wholemeal self-raising flour
- 50 g Parmesan cheese
- 1 tablespoon sunflower seeds
- 1 tablespoon poppy seeds
Evenly divide the muffin mixture between the cases. Sprinkle over the sunflower and poppy seeds, then dot over the reserved slices of chilli. Use the remaining Parmesan to give a light dusting of cheese over each one, then bake at the bottom of the oven for 45 to 50 minutes (if using squash, it’ll be a bit quicker – check after 35 minutes), or until golden and set.
These are amazing served warm 5 minutes after taking them out of the oven, and good kept in the fridge for a couple of days. Enjoy 2 muffins per portion.
