Feta Cheese Olive Breakfast Muffin Recipe

Soft, easy to make at home breakfast muffins (savory no less), that require a handful of ingredients.

They are vegetarian and kid-friendly too. Our kids have them for breakfast or brunch (embarrassingly often).

FETA CHEESE OLIVE MUFFINS – Ingredients

Every muffin recipe advises us to divide the ingredients into two groups – wet and dry.

DRY INGREDIENTS:

  • Flour – this feta cheese muffin recipe call for regular unbleached flour or whole wheat flour. Both work equally good here.
  • Flax seeds – flax seeds are a lovely addition to these savory muffins. You can use all types of seed here (in same proportion) if desired.
  • Dill, dried – I use dried, finely chopped dill, but you can also add fresh.
  • Baking powder – the rising agent here is baking powder. If self-rising flour is used you can skip adding baking powder, or add just a pinch.

WET INGREDIENTS:

  • Milk – I like to use whole milk for these muffins, but any percentage milk will do. Just remember, the fattier the milk, the thicker the milk will be.
  • Egg – only one large egg is needed here.
  • Vegetable oil – I’ve used olive oil or sunflower seed oil. both work just fine.
  • Feta Cheese, crumbled – crumbled feta cheese is a lovely addition to any savory muffin recipe.
  • Green olives – green olives should be pitted and chopped into rough pieces.

HOW TO MAKE FETA CHEESE BREAKFAST MUFFINS – tips

  1. Mix wet ingredient and dry ingredients separately. If you want muffins to rise to their maximum
  2. Leave one muffin pan cup empty during baking– that way when you try to take out the hot oven, you can grab the muffin pan much easier.
  3. Control the size of your muffins by adding less or more batter into each separate cup. If you want smaller muffins, place batter just below muffin pan level. If you want them to be bigger, place heaping batter amount into muffin pan cups.
  4. Substitute: the following substitutions are possible: Feta Cheese -> White Cheese or Cheddar cheese; Flax seeds -> Chia Seeds, Sunflower seeds or Pumpkin seeds;

    Reminds me of vacation time in Greece! I changed green olives with kalamata olives and they were scrumptious. Thx
