Healthy Savoury Muffins for Breakfast

I Prepared these Savoury Muffins with Carrot, Cabbage, corriander leaves. I used Wheat Flour and Oats Flour, all these put together and baked without oil tasted really good. The Guilt part was the Egg Yolks. Next time i should try substituting Eggs with Flax seeds. I added finely sliced Green Chilli's and Red Chilli Flakes to add up the spice. It really helped the muffins taste better than bland taste. These Muffins just tasted like Whole Wheat Bread, this reminds me that i should start baking Breads...

Whole Wheat Savoury Muffins


(Yields 8 Large Muffins)

Wheat Flour - 400 gms
Oat Flour - 75 gms
Salt - 1 tbsp
Baking Powder - 1 tsp
Baking Soda - 1 tsp

Grated Carrot - 3 tbsp
Grated Cabbage - 4 tbsp
Green Chilli - 1 (finely sliced)
Red Chilli Flakes - 2 tsp
Corriander Leaves - 2 tbsp's (finely chopped)

Whole Large Egg's - 2
Buttermilk - 1/2 cup


Pre-Heat the Oven to 220C.

Mix the Wheat Flour with Oats Flour. add salt, baking soda and baking powder. Mix well with your hands.

Remember : Never Sieve/Sift the Wheat Flour. The Nutrients are lost when sieved.

Now add Grated Carrot, Cabbage, Green Chilli, Red Chilli Flakes & Corriander Leaves to the flours and mix well.

Beat the Egg and add it to the flour. mix with a wooden spoon.

Add Buttermilk to the flour and mix well with the spoon. I kept mixing with hands. It should be like our little watery chapathi dough.

Grease the Muffin Pan and spoon in the dough into the moulds.

Bake it for about 20 minutes at 220c. and check whether it has cooked by inserting a toothpick or knife in centre of the muffins and comes out clean. If Not cooked bake them for another 5 minutes.

Enjoy the Muffins Warm!!

Healthy Savoury Muffin

How it Tasted?

Muffins did'nt taste bland, as the red chilli flakes and finely chopped green chilli helped a lot in adding spice. Muffins tasted like a spiced whole wheat bread. i could not even spot the Oat flour.
Cabbage and Carrot gave a different touch to the muffins. for me it tasted like a bonda:)

Finally these No Oil Muffins tasted Good.

  11. I am a big fan of savory muffins. These are just perfect for me in any meal. Loved the recipe.

  12. Delicious muffins with a lovely click.

  13. Do you think it will be ok if I skip oat flour and eggs ?

  14. Hi Usha..You can skip Oat flour.

    if u skip egg, the muffins wont raise much.and the baked muffins will be harder. you can try substituting eggs with flax seed. for savory muffins flax seeds works best.

  15. Hi,
    Looked really good so tries these to accompany soup today, but are the measures correct?
    400g flour with only 1/2 cup butter milk ans 2 eggs?
    wasn't wet at all, had to add warm water, also 400gms wheat plus 75gms oats flour yielded 18 muffins. is it supposed to be 40gms flour.
    Thanks for the post.

  16. Anita,
    You are right, if i have got 8 muffins, it could not be 400gms. Iam so sorry for trouble caused. i will correct now. I should have used one cup of flour, which could be 200gms.

    Thanks for letting me know. how did it turn up?


  17. Muffins did not rise as muffins usually do, however I would really appreciate a revised recipe with the correct measures, very hard to come by recipes for muffins without oil.
    Also I didn't use eggs, subbed with 2 tbsp flax seeds, ground and whipped with 6 tbsp of warm water.Also subbed coriander leaves with basil leaves.
    Great taste though.
