Whole Wheat and Dill Savory Muffins

dill muffins

Have you tried savory muffins before? Muffins are a kid favorite and they are usually very high in calories and sugar. I have come up with a healthy alternative that is savory and perfect for their school lunch. These savory muffins are great for breakfast, dinner or simply as a side with a dollop of butter….my favorite way of eating them!

Today I have made whole wheat and dill muffins using stone ground whole-wheat flour and fresh dill from my vegetable garden. These have a grainy and soft texture, and bursting with mild earthy flavors.

Don’t have dill? No worries…make them with herbs of your choice!

My kids absolutely loved them and I am sure they will appeal to both kids and adults once you make them!

Notes:

  • You can use half whole wheat and half all-purpose flour if you like softer texture.
  • Use a cup of yogurt instead of sour cream.
  • Make sure not to over mix the batter otherwise the muffins will get tough.
  • Do not over bake the muffins and take them out as soon they are done (you can test the center with a toothpick or fork).
