Vegetable Egg Muffins

Vegetable Egg Muffins


Every mum wants to ensure that their little one is getting their five a day, so snacks like these Vegetable Egg Muffins are great for sneaking a portion in. Kids adore muffins, so the familiar form will mean they will be excited to try. These are perfect for popping into the lunch box and giving some added nutritious value during school hours. Muffins are a great method of introducing fruit and vegetables to your little one, and I always try to add these healthy foods to my muffin recipes. Find this recipe and more in the Lunchbox Made Easy recipe book!

The Mummy Cooks Lunch Set contains twenty pots in four different sizes, all the containers you will need for the week!

Makes: 12 muffins

  1. Preheat the oven to 190°c. Grease a muffin tin or use a silicone muffin tray.

  3. Pour the mixture into the muffin cases, until each case is about 2/3 of the way full.
