Cheesy Vegetable Muffins

Cheesy Vegetable Muffins

The kids are back to school next week and whether it’s for their lunch boxes or for when the come home supposedly dying of starvation it’s good to have some ready prepared healthy snacks on hand to give them. I have been challenged by Iceland to come up with a simple recipe for my readers to show you all the #PowerOfFrozen. So off I headed to Iceland to get all the ingredients and then headed into the kitchen to rustle up some pretty tasty Cheesy Vegetable Muffins.

Ingredients (makes 12 muffins)

2oog self raising flour
100g grated cheese plus extra to sprinkle on top (I’m using a mature cheddar)
50ml vegetable oil
150ml milk
1 egg
1 cup of frozen vegetables

  1. Pre heat your oven 200°C/gas mark 6.
  2. In a large bowl combine the flour and grated cheese.
  3. Mix in the egg.
  4. Add the milk and oil, give it a good mix.
  5. Blitz your frozen veg (any will work mine was carrots, peas & sweetcorn)
  6. Fold the blitzed veg into your mixture. This will give you a lumpy consistency.
  7. Spoon evenly into muffin cases & sprinkle a little grated cheese on top.
  8. Cook for 20-22 minutes or until lightly browned and cooked through.

Make sure you leave them to cool down before you tuck in. They make a great little snack for children and adults too it’s a really simple way to get some more vegetables into your children with out them really realising, using cute cake cases also makes it fun for them.


They can be made ahead of time so you have them ready to pop into lunch boxes as they make a good alternative to sandwiches. They can even be frozen if you wanted to make a big batch; just take a couple out of the freezer the night before school.


What do you think of out cheesy vegetable muffins will you be giving them a go? What are your favourite things to make for the children’s lunch boxes.
