SweetP loves muffins so I’ve been experimenting with stuffing as much fruit, veggies, and other healthy things as possible into muffin form.  So far pumpkin spice and banana with blueberries have been a hit, but when SweetP eats four mini muffins at a time even minimally sweetened muffins seem like a lot of sugar.  This week I decided to try a savory muffin.

Spinach Cheddar Muffins

1 3/4 c. flour (I used gluten free – half Bob’s Red Mill and half Pamela’s bread flour plus 3/4 tsp. xanthan gum)
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. baking soda

3/4 c. milk
1/4 c. sour cream
6 T. melted butter
1 egg
1 c. shredded cheddar
12 oz. bag frozen spinach thawed and with as much moisture as possible squeezed out

Mix all of the dry ingredients together and all of the wet ingredients together (including the spinach and cheese). Dump the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.  Spoon into muffin tins that have been well greased or lined with muffin papers (I made 6 regular muffins and 16 mini muffins).  Bake at 350°F for 15 minutes for mini muffins or 35 minutes for regular muffins.

I forgot this time, but next time I think I’ll add a couple of tablespoons of flax meal.
