Indian Spiced Carrot and Feta Muffins

Updated: Jan 8, 2020

Please, please try these muffins. They are an absolute taste sensation! Wholemeal, filled with natural ingredients, delicious and absolutely brilliant to crack out a batch (or 3) of these and have them to hand for snacks.

When I last made these, we went off for a swim shortly after they came out of the oven. I wasn’t fussed about the swim, I was focusing on the fact that I’d get home afterwards and munch on one of these with a giant cup of tea!

I love the subtle spice of cumin and coriander in t muffins and the sharp, tangy feta cheese just finishes them off an absolute treat!

and Feta Muffins

Makes 12


80g unsalted butter, melted and cooled, plus 10g for frying

1 onion, finely diced

2 tsp ground cumin

2 tbsp freshly chopped coriander

150g spinach, tough stalks removed and very finely shredded

250g wholemeal plain flour

2 tsp baking powder

½ tsp bicarbonate of soda

1½ tsp salt

2 eggs

275g whole milk yoghurt

150g carrots, grated

200g Feta cheese, crumbled

40g pumpkin seeds, toasted


1- Heat the oven to 200°C and line a muffin tin with 12 paper cases.

2- Warm the 10g of butter in a large frying pan and gently fry the onion with a pinch of salt until soft and translucent for 10 minutes. Add the cumin, stir for a minute, then add the spinach and stir until wilted and soft. Cool.

3- In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt.

4- In a jug, combine the melted butter, eggs and yoghurt. Pour the wet ingredients over the flour and stir with a spatula until just combined.

5- Fold in the cooled onions and spinach, the carrots, fresh coriander, 150g of the feta and seeds.

6- Spoon into the cases, top with the remaining feta cheese and bake for about 25-30 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean.

Best served warm with a huge cuppa!
