Fast Friday: Spinach & Feta Muffins

Happy Friday!

Today’s Fast Friday post is a little out of the ordinary… it’s savoury! While the vast majority of recipes I share are sugar-centric, I do love all things savoury – especially if it has the magic words ‘spinach’ and ‘feta’ in the name!

These spinach and feta muffins are absolutely delicious and packed full of flavour – in addition to the ingredients these are named after, these muffins also feature red onion, tasty cheese and mixed herbs to give them a well rounded flavour. Eaten warm or cold they make the perfect addition to the lunchbox – I’m sure you’ll love them too.
