These are probably the best savoury muffins I have ever made. They are light and fluffy, salty and have a refreshing hint of basil. The combination of parmesan, olives and basil reminds me of a pizza and these muffins taste like little healthy pizzas, especially with a dollop of tomato chutney.



Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Makes: 6 servings

Ingredients
1 free range egg
1/4 cup olive oil
1⁄2 cup milk
1 1⁄2 cups wholemeal flour
1/3 cup parmesan or tasty cheese
2 tsp baking powder
1⁄2 Teaspoon salt and pepper
20 olives
Handful of basil leaves



Method
Pre-heat the oven to 200 C.

Beat the egg until foamy then beat in the oil and milk.

Add the grated cheese and diced, deseeded olives.

In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, salt, pepper, baking powder and stir in the chopped basil.



Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the liquid ingredients. Mix together until combined.


Fill each lined muffin cup 3/4 to the top and sprinkle with a little extra cheese.



Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.

These are best served warm and are great on their own or with a little tomato chutney.
