Savoury muffins I hear you say? Yes absolutely! They taste just as good as the sweet alternative.
These delicious pesto and pistachio muffins are soft, fluffy, very light and truly scrumptious.
Serve them straight from the oven with a nice green salad for a quick and healthy dinner. They also make a very good alternative to sandwiches for lunch boxes (Not in a school though because of the nuts!!). How about adding them to your scrumptious brunch?
Packed full of flavours, you can make them on Sunday and then freeze for the rest of the week. Cake for lunch anyone?!
The first time I made pesto and pistachio muffins, was to bring them for an aperitif, where they were gone in seconds – literally!
We’ve also eaten them as a family dinner, still warm from the oven with a side salad and some green beans.
They are simply scrumptious and a total doddle to make. This is a great recipe to use leftover pesto.
The Momo touch:
  • You will go from raw, unchopped ingredients to ready to bake in under 10 minutes.
  • Grate cheese, add the rest of the ingredients and mix it all, all in one bowl – easy peasy!
  • No need to use tons of pots and pans and no washing up at all since Momo will clean itself!
As ever if you’ve enjoyed these pesto and pistachio muffins, I’d be extremely grateful if you could leave a comment below.
Bon appetit – Enjoy x

Nowadays, I have lived 48.3% of my life (estimated), I write profusely on Twitter (fact), blog very infrequently, married said man. Also I don’t like chocolate and I can wriggle my ears. How about you? What’s your party trick? Thanks for stopping by!
