broccoli cheese muffins

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.
