These Roasted Pumpkin and Feta Muffins are deliciously sweet and salty and fantastic for school lunches. Savoury muffins are a great option in the lunchbox instead of a sandwich.

  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 egg

  1. Preheat your oven to 180c and grease your muffin tin
  2. Whisk together the pumpkin, ricotta, oil, milk and egg
  3. Stir through the feta, spring onions, salt and pepper until well combined
  4. Add the flour and mix through gently until just combined
  5. Spoon into the prepared muffin tray and bake for around 15 minutes until lightly golden and a skewer inserted comes out clean
