Baked Pumpkin and Goats Cheese Muffins

These muffins make for the perfect lunchbox snack as they are nut free and packed with a serve of vegetables. For this recipe I use leftover cold roasted pumpkin. I’ll often roast a whole lot of pumpkin and sweet potato on the weekend and then use it in dishes like this. Roasted pumpkin also freezes very well and can then be used in this recipe later.

What you’ll need

250g roasted pumpkin

2 eggs

½ tsp sea salt

1 clove garlic, crushed

½ red onion, finely diced

100g spelt flour

75g buckwheat flour

5g baking powder

80g goats cheese

2 tbs pepitas

How to put this together

  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C.
  2. Line a 6 hole muffin tray with either baking paper or muffin wrappers.
  3. Add the roasted pumpkin to a bowl and mash with a fork.
  4. Add the eggs, salt and crushed garlic and mix until well combined.
  5. Add the diced red onion, spelt flour, buckwheat flour and baking powder.
  6. Mix together until just combined, being carefully not to over mix.
  7. Divide the mixture between the 6 muffin cases and top with some goats cheese and a sprinkle of pepitas.
  8. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes.
