You guys, most of the time I find “healthy” savory muffins pretty disgusting because they either taste weird (because of weird ingredients!) or super eggy and really…no, not for me thank you very much! But these babies?! They’re sooo good! Not an once of weirdness or eggyness (don’t mind me, I’m French so I’m allowed to invent English words if I want to 💁).

The ingredients might not be typical typical but they do NOT taste funky and they’re much more nutritious than the classic white flour. And girls, have you tried the combo feta + chives before? Such a winner! I love chives, they’re a bit like onions but not so intense and a bit more complex in flavor. The zucchini keeps them super moist while packing an extra serving of veggies.

I made these with breakfast in mind but I first baked them at my mom’s place when I was in Paris earlier in April and she later served them as appetizers to her friends (and they were a big hit she told me!). So, brekky or apps, you decide!

Whichever you choose, know that they freeze really well so you can make a batch, freeze it and thaw as needed (on the counter or in the microwave). Super convenient, especially if you tend to be super busy in the morning and need to grab something to eat on your way out! Enjoy! 🙂
