Hello, muffin – what’s that you’re hiding?
Under your cheesy crispy exterior, inside your fluffy buttery crumb, I spy a hidden broccoli tree!
When I made pepperoni chili, I wanted to pair it with a muffin. I knew from the tastes as it simmered all day that this chili was going to be epic – I needed an equally knock your socks off muffin to accompany it.
The recipe I found is epic, this I guarantee.
The flavor is buttery and cheesy and if comfort was a flavor, I’d say that too.
These are crispy yet soft, light yet substantial. The extra fun is a full tree of broccoli inside each muffin – always a popular trick.
The original recipe is the genius of Kate from Food Babbles.
The changes I made:
full trees of broccoli inserted into muffin rather than chopped broccoli mixed in
apple cider vinegar + coconut milk in place of buttermilk
gluten free all purpose flour, plus 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
vegan cheddar cheese, flax egg
and then make these muffins as soon as it is possible.
