Pumpkin, Goats Cheese And Parmesan Savoury Muffins

While we’ve used spinach and pumpkin with goats cheese and parmesan, you can alternate the ingredients to suit what you like eating or have handy. If you can, stick to using a stronger flavoured cheese. The rich flavours of goats cheese and parmesan means you end up using less product which cuts down on calories.

Enjoy!
