Feta Cheese Olive Breakfast Muffin Recipe

Soft, easy to make at home breakfast muffins (savory no less), that require a handful of ingredients. If you are a fan of Feta Cheese (or white cheese for that matter), olives and seeds, these delicious Greek-style muffins might be your next favorite breakfast. They are vegetarian and kid-friendly too. Our kids have them for breakfast or brunch (embarrassingly often).


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


  • Flour – this feta cheese muffin recipe call for regular all purpose flour or whole wheat flour. Both work equally good here.
  • 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
  • Feta cheese – crumbled
  • Green olives – pitted and cut


  • 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.
  • Butter – I’ve also used olive oil or sunflower seed oil – both work just fine.


1st: Combine wet and dry ingredients in separate bowls. Mix well each.

2nd: Make a well in the middle of dry ingredients and pour over wet ones. Mix to just combine. Distribute into muffin cups. Bake!


  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.

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