These tasty, savoury muffins were whipped up quickly during one of George’s cat naps and were enjoyed at a picnic with my mothers’ group overlooking the harbour on a picture perfect afternoon. Happy days! They are sure to be enjoyed just as much in your lounge room having morning tea with your toddler. These muffins are a great way to use up leftover basil in your fridge from last night’s dinner.
Nutrition Note: Muffins don’t have to be a buttery, sugary, sweet treat. They can be a new way to encourage and introduce vegetables and herbs to fussy eaters.
