Eggless Mini Cheese and Onion Muffins (Just Like M&S)

Eggless Mini Cheese and Onion Muffins (Just Like M&S)

For Mother’s Day, I had planned on not cooking very much for the afternoon tea we were hosting. I know I know, lazy right? I was still pretty shattered from coming back from holiday and returning straight back to work. I had planned on relying on Marks & Spencer’s for all our goodies but unfortunately I’d left it a day too late and one of my favourite items – their cheese and onion muffins, weren’t available! So I tasked myself with coming up with my own recipe!


I was super proud of myself – they went down an absolute treat! I hope you enjoy them as much as we did! They tasted just like the Marks & Spencer’s version!


Prep time: 15 minutes

Makes: 40 mini muffins 


  • 100ml olive oil
  • 100ml full fat milk
  • 2 tablespoons plain greek yoghurt
  • 300g self raising flour
  • 1 teaspoon English mustard powder
  • 160g grated mature cheddar
  • 1 bunch of spring onions
  • A small bunch of snipped chives
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 250g full fat soft cheese
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 25g parmesan


  1. Heat the oven to 180c and oil a muffin tin. Alternatively, use a silicon muffin tray like I did and there’s no need to grease 🙂
  2. Whisk the oil, milk and yoghurt together.
  3. In a separate mixing bowl, mix together the flour, salt, mustard powder, oregano, cheddar cheese, spring onions, chives and ½ the parmesan. You’ll already be able to start smelling the yummy goodness!
  4. Use a large spoon and gently fold in the wet ingredients in to the dry. Mix in the soft cheese lightly. The mixture should have a wet dough like consistency.

5. Spoon in the mixture in to the muffin tray and sprinkle with the remaining parmesan.



6. Place in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.

      These look amazing! They would be so easy to make dairy/soya free too – Definitely going to give these a go next week for some half term picnics!! #FreefromFridays x
