Ham and Vegetable Muffins - A delicious morsel of goodness for the lunch box.

Ham and Vegetable Muffins

I’m a big fan of muffins. These Ham and Vegetable Muffins are so versatile – they are good for toddlers, school kids, Mums and Dads (only if they are really hungry!) Plus I like the fact you can freeze muffins.

I particularly love this recipe though, because my kids love ham, and that is all they think about when they eat these muffins – which is good for me – because I’ve hidden veggies in there!!  Great warm with a bit of butter…

How to Freeze Ham and Vegetable Muffins

Once you have made the muffins, allow them to cool totally to room temperature. Individually wrap the muffins in plastic wrap and pop in the freezer.  These will be good frozen for up to a month!

Tips on How to Make Ham and Vegetable Muffins Healthier

  • If you are trying to make these muffins even more nourishing, substitute the flour for wholemeal or wholegrain flour.
  • Add 1/2 cup of Chia Seeds to the mix – these add a delicious crunch and are full of fibre.
  • The butter can be substituted for coconut oil for a really beautiful nutty flavour
