Broccoli is the trending veggie everyone is talking about. I was curious about this vegetable until one day, I decided to experiment with it. And there is no looking back. I love the taste of broccoli and I make sure it is incorporated into my diet twice a week. And why not, broccoli is rich in antioxidants, protein, and fiber. Broccoli is also a great option to those on low carb diet like me. So this time around, I want to share my broccoli mini muffins. It’s easy and can be made in minutes with pre-preps. The savory muffins taste delicious and you can pair them with some thick curd or drizzle lemon honey mix.

  • Do not add all the water at once, slowly add water until the mixture is just damp. Ensure that you don’t make it runny.
  • Let it stand for 8-10 mins so that the flaxmeal absorbs water and becomes sticky.
  • Heat the oven to 325 degree F and spray the muffin tray with baking spray.
  • Transfer the mixture to the muffin pan and bake it for 15-18 mins.
  • Do a toothpick test to check if the muffins are cooked. If not cooked, bake them for 5 more mins.

Notes

I have made this recipe vegan. But you can also add 1 egg into the mixture to get fluffier muffins.
