We're loving these gluten-free savoury muffins by our friend Christina Leon. They come loaded with seasonal vegetables, roasted pumpkin seeds, and creamy feta cheese. Yum!


1 1/2 cup rice flour
1/2 cup almond flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
Pinch of sea salt and cracked pepper
1/2 cup almond milk
1 Tbsp lemon juice and rind of 1/2 lemon
1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar 
1/4 cup melted extra virgin coconut oil or extra virgin olive oil
Egg replacement (2 Tbsp. chia seeds soaked with 1/4 cup water for 10 minutes) 
1 large handful of roughly chopped spinach
1 cup mixed roasted pumpkin and sweet potato cubes
100g g goat cheese or sheep cheese feta cheese
1/4 cup toasted pumpkin seeds


Preheat the oven to 190 degrees.

Peel 1/4 pumpkin and 1/2 sweet potato and chop into small cubes and place on a lined baking tray.

Drizzle over 1-2 tbsp of melted coconut oil and rub the pieces with your hands. Sprinkle with sea salt and add some cracked black pepper.

Place in the oven and bake for 30 minutes until cooked.

In a bowl add the dry ingredients and combine together.

In a separate bowl add in the almond milk, egg replacement, apple cider vinegar, and melted coconut and mix together.

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry mixture and combine together. 

Add in the roasted pumpkin, sweet potato, chopped spinach and gently mix through.

Crumble the feta and fold through the mixture.

Line your muffin tin and spoon the mixture into the muffin cases.

Sprinkle over the toasted pumpkin seeds.

Place in the oven and bake for about 20 minutes until fluffy and cooked through.

Hello Christina, if I preferred to use eggs instead of substitute, how many would this recipe call for a perfect swap?
