Comforting cheese and carrot lunchbox muffin recipe

Posted in Recipes.

What could be nicer sidled up to a big bowl of hot soup? Or warm with a nice slathering of butter? Or tucked inside a lunch box waiting for a great kid to pop the lid open and gobble them all up?!

These muffins are cheesy and carrot-y and very easy to make. If you fancy you could add a spoonful or two of pesto – or substitute the carrot for zucchini.

Don’t hold back on the cheese though!
