Feta and kale savoury muffins


Meal prepping at the weekend is a great way to save time during busy weekday mornings. We like to make a batch of savoury muffins to enjoy when a nutritious, filling breakfast is essential, but time is tight. This flavoursome feta and kale muffin recipe is a firm favourite, we’re sure you’ll see why.


  • Small handful of kale
  • 180g spelt flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp mustard powder
  • 150g Greek yoghurt
  • 1/2 tsp Marmite
  • 80ml olive oil
  • 20ml milk
  • 2 organic eggs
  • 100g feta cheese, crumbled


  • Preheat oven to 200°C/400°F/gas mark 6 at least 30 minutes before the muffins go in. Grease a 6-muffin tray with olive oil or, alternatively, use muffin cases.
  • Destalk the kale, so you have just the leaves. Rinse in cold water before setting to one side.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the spelt flour, baking powder and mustard powder. In a smaller bowl, mix together the yoghurt, Marmite, olive oil, milk and eggs. Create a well in the dry ingredients, and pour in the wet ingredients.
  • Carefully fold together the wet and dry ingredients, stirring inthe kale and half of the feta cheese. If the mixture is too dry, add a little more milk to loosen it to a dough-like consistency that can be scooped into the tray.
  • Generously spoon the batter into the prepared muffin tray, and crumble the remaining feta on top. Lower the temperature of the oven to 180°C/350°F/gas mark 4, and bake the muffins for 25 minutes until golden, or until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean.
