Savoury Pizza Muffins (Sweet Potato chilli)

Pizza muffin 3

Love pizza? Try these deliciously savoury healthy pizza muffins. How can this be healthy? The base ingredient is actually sweet potato! Add to that sun-dried tomatoes, olives, cheese, ground chia seed  & ground flaxseed, you have high protein, high fibre, nutritious muffins with slow release carbs from the sweet potato to keep you going throughout the day. To further boost the nutritive profile, my recipe includes the option of using protein powder too. (I use soy or pea-derived).

These muffins encapsulate all the flavours from pizza but in a healthy form, great for the health conscious including those on paleo diets, but also a way of encouraging less healthy eaters to eat more nutritiously! By using gluten-free flour, this recipe is also suitable for coeliacs.

These muffins are highly portable, making them ideal for grab-and-go breakfasts & lunch-boxes. You can make these as standard size muffins which just need a little more baking time or as cute mini-muffins (which i love!), which always go down a treat at for buffets, BBQs and parties.

36 mini muffins or…

…12 large muffins

What is more, these muffins can be whipped up in about 20 mins, require only one mixing pot (so less washing up!), a blender/ food processor (which reduces chopping time!) & they freeze well.
