  1. I followed this recipe to the letter – just double and triple checked it. I couldn’t get these muffins to cook – they’ve been in the oven 40 min on 200C and still gluggy inside. What is the texture inside meant to look like?

      They are a moist muffin on the inside but crisp on the outside. The amount of veggies in them keeps them moist. Cook for a bit longer if you’d prefer them slightly drier. 🙂
