  • 90 ml sunflower oil
  • 2 tsp ground linseed mixed with 2-3 tsp water
  • 375 g self-raising flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper or to taste
  • 1/3 tsp salt
  • 60 g nutritional yeast
  • 165 g frozen spinach or use 500g fresh & cook down
  • 420 ml plant milk
  • 6 cherry tomatoes to decorate
  1. Pre-heat oven to 190⁰C and put muffin cases in 12 piece muffin tin.
  2. In one bowl, place the oil, linseed & plant milk & mix to combine.

  3. In another bowl, mix together the nutritional yeast, flour, baking powder, chilli powder & salt

  4. Thaw the spinach & squeeze to remove excess moisture , chop it up a bit so the pieces are able to be mixed in easily (or if using fresh spinach, gently steam, squeeze out & chop)

  5. Slowly add the liquid mix to the dry mix, stirring bit by bit until it's all combined. Don't over mix.

  6. Add the spinach to the mix & stir to combine.

  7. Spoon the mixture into each muffin case and top with half a cherry tomato & some seeds

  8. Bake for 25 minutes. By this time the tops should be a golden brown. Put a skewer in one of them and make sure it comes out clean. They may need an extra 5 minutes.
  9. Once cooked, take the muffins out the tin and put on a cooling rack.
