Eggless Spinach, Broccoli, Pepper and Cheese Muffins Recipe

Eggless Spinach, Broccoli, Pepper and Cheese Muffins Recipe

Hello all, 

I’ve had lots of requests for the recipe for the Eggless Spinach, Broccoli, Pepper and Cheese Muffins I made last week so here it is! 

I was originally inspired to try muffins for Arjun by Habiba over at Eat, Write, Be. I decided to adapt the recipe to make it eggless and also added extra vegetables.


Plate can be purchased Here (available in three different colours). 

Age: 9 months plus (once your baby is eating solids)

Makes: 15 mini muffins 
Time taken: 30 minutes


  • 1/2 red onion, chopped
  • 1tsp butter
  • 175g plain flour
  • 1¼ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp red chilli powder
  • 125g cheddar cheese, grated
  • 100ml full fat milk
  • 2 tbsp plain natural yoghurt
  • 2 cubes spinach and broccoli purée (approx 4 tbsp)
  • 1/2 red pepper
  • Handful chopped spinach 
  • Black pepper to taste 


1) Heat butter in pan and shallow fry onions and peppers until soft. Add in the spinach and broccoli purée and cook for a few minutes and then leave mix to one side. 

2) Pour the milk and yoghurt into a bowl and whisk to combine.

3) In a another bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, red chilli powder, black pepper, chopped spinach and cheese. 

4) Pour in the milk and yoghurt mixture and whisk together until you get a thick doughy mixture. 

5) Pour the mix into your mini muffin tray and bake for approximately 20 mins at 180. 


Serving suggestion: three bean and sweetcorn salad, baked beans and guacamole. 

Arjun enjoyed his dinner at his teddy bear picnic in the garden. 

As you end up making a batch of about 15 with the above recipe, as suggested by Habiba, I decided to freeze the batter as opposed to the muffins. I cooked 6 – enough for Arjun’s dinner and lunch the following day and froze the rest in an Annabel Karmel by NUK Food Cube Tray so it’s easy to defrost as and when I need to.

    I saw these on your insta feed, and I’m so happy you’ve posted a recipe. They look delicious! Some days I really am not feeling eggy tasting baking so I can’t wait to try these ones. K x

    These look delicious. Always on the look out for new foods to try with our little one (14 months), especially veggie recipes as I have stopped eating meat as of a few months ago.
