bookmark_borderSavoury Spinach Muffins – Revamped!

This is a recipe I originally posted in 2010, but I’ve come back to make this a lot healthier. The trick is substituting Greek yogurt for half of the oil! It cuts down the calories in the muffins from 175 to 115 with way less fat. They’re just as moist, as well! The recipe originally had 1/2 cup of olive oil, and now only has 1/4 cup + 2tbsp of Greek yogurt. I think you’ll love them.

These muffins make a fantastic addition to any brunch, or a great side dish for pretty much anything. They’re incredibly versatile and I’ve also made this with zucchini, if you’re not a fan of spinach. They’re fluffy, hearty, and have a lot of flavour without a lot of work.

Biscuits aren’t biscuits in Australia. In Australia “biscuits” are cookies, and they don’t have anything like American biscuits. In America, biscuits are served instead of bread rolls with some meals. They’re scone-like, hearty, buttery, and are an amazing comfort food. Drop biscuits aren’t kneaded or cut into circle shapes like some biscuits are. They’re by far the simplest type to make, and this recipe goes a step further by even cutting down on the number of ingredients that most recipes have. These are delicious as a side with bbq chicken, roasts, or even for breakfast with eggs. I was looking through recipes for these and wondering why they had so many ingredients. I gave it a try with just the basics and it’s better than anything else I’ve tried!

Quiche doesn’t have to be heavy, soggy, or greasy. It’s possible to have a light tasting quiche that is also creamy and full of flavorful ingredients! This quiche is quite simple to make and excellent for any meal of the day. With fresh dill and feta, it really lightens up the flavor and is lower in fat than other types of quiche. Serve with a side salad and some bread for an elegant but simple meal.

bookmark_borderCoffee Banana Oat Muffins

Coffee and banana seem like an unlikely combination, but the flavors complement each other incredibly well. Simply leave out the coffee if you’re not a fan, but it adds a nice additional flavor that isn’t too strong. These muffins are simultaneously fluffy and also hearty due to the oats and make a great portable breakfast. With 265 calories for a big muffin (or 198 for a smaller one), they’re not incredibly unhealthy either. Everyone wins!
