Ham, Cheese & Pineapple Muffins

If your kids are tired of the same old boring sandwiches for lunches, or they simply want a change from sweet snacks to something savoury, my ham, cheese and pineapple muffins are a great choice. 

These muffins are yummy and full of healthy goodness. This recipe is easy to make, you just put all the ingredients into the bowl, mix, spoon into muffin trays and then bake!  But I do have a tip for you! With all my savoury muffins, I like to use a silicone muffin tray, as it’s so much easier to wipe away melted cheese off the silicone tray than scrubbing it off tin trays.

Make a double batch and freeze these muffins!
