Halloumi & Mint Muffins

Halloumi & Mint Muffins

A savoury coconut flour muffin that is flavoured with halloumi cheese and mint.  Halloumi and mint usually appear together in a salad but I’ve seen a Greek bread recipe combining these too flavours so thought I’d try it in a savoury muffin form.

The lemon gives the flavours a boost but you might want to add more or perhaps some preserved lemon to the mixture.  The smell of these baking made we wish for “smell-o-vision” as the smell was fantastic and I wish I could share it with you.  Who needs air freshners when you have a muffin or two baking in the oven!

As well as being a low carb snack, I find that savoury muffins are a great substitute for bread rolls when having soup.  As these are high in fibre they are very filling so you may only need one or two to make that bowl of soup into a hearty meal.
