In most peoples eyes muffins could only be sweet. Some even think that savory muffins are not a thing. If you are one among them, then I challenge you to try these muffins. And I promise you, you would believe savory muffins are really a thing!
I love to make savory muffins and include it as a part of my lunch. I can see that you are giving me a crazy look, but trust me on this, you can eat these muffins for lunch :). These muffins are super tasty and filled with goodness.
They’re made with whole wheat flour, finger millet and oats flour which makes them super healthy and super filling too. These muffins are dense due to use of multi grain flour. The grated carrots give these muffins a slightly earthy flavour, which goes beautifully with the herbs , so that every bite is delicious and deeply satisfying! These muffins can be enjoyed as part of a delicious lunch or grabbed quickly for a breakfast on the go. Add some tahini or sour cream on the muffins and happily munch away!
