You know what I love more than snacking… Healthy snacking!!! These savory muffins are a great way to sneak in some healthy ingredients into your day. They are easy to make and can make a bunch in advance and store to eat later. You can refrigerate them for up to a week and freeze for up to 3 months!

What I love most about them is the heat kick I’ve added with the green chilis, it lifts the flavor & gives the muffin more personality.

This is also a great recipe to prepare for any gatherings that you may be hosting. You could serve the muffins with veggie sticks such as carrots & cucumbers along with dips.

Here are some other tasty foods to nibble on.

So let’s get started!
