Broccoli & Cheddar Muffins

These are great muffins for the whole family! They’re super tasty and full of flavour. My boy’s favourite food is broccoli (long may it last!), and I’m trying to mix it up a little for him. We really love these too, and they’re great for packed lunch.

These can be frozen by dividing them with baking paper, wrapping them in tin foil and sealing in a zip-lock bag. They should last for around 3 months, and can be reheated by defrosting in the microwave, or heating gently in the oven.
