Hey !
What would you say about savoury muffins for a change? A simple recipe to spice up the apéro I know you love, or simply change from the boring sandwich from the supermarket. Who said that pastries were only for the sweet tooth?

The other day I found some courgettes on the market and felt like doing muffins. Only I coudn’t decide whether to do savoury or sweet muffins (I assure you, sweet courgette cakes are delicious). In the end I went for savoury. I put homemade pesto, goat cheese, walnuts and nutmeg. I even added some raisins to have a sweet twist.

I didn’t use eggs so if you don’t put goat cheese they are vegan. The result was all in all delicious, so here’s the recipe without further ado.
