Savory Goat Cheese Muffins with Sun-Dried Tomato and Fresh Herbs

With bits of sun-dried tomato, green herby sprinkles, and creamy goat cheese tang in every bite, these savory goat cheese muffins positively burst with bright flavors! Rustic, almost biscuit-like, they’re a winning match with steaming hot soup and a crisp green salad.

Muffins can be made savory or sweet, depending what you put in them, maybe berries, nuts, and cheese. These tender muffins are definitely savory–thanks to tangy goat cheese, chopped sun-dried tomatoes and minced herbs.

A basic muffin is simply a mix of flour, leavening, milk, salt, and fat. Here, the flour is whole wheat, the leavening is an egg plus baking soda and baking flour. Yogurt sits in as the milk quotient and olive oil for the fat.

In these Cottage Cheese Dill Muffins, also savory, the milk is cottage cheese and yogurt, the add-ins are green onions and fresh dill.

Goat Cheese, Sun-dried Tomato and Fresh Herb Muffins recipe details:

  • More often than not, I have fresh parsley or cilantro in my fridge, so more often than not, I substitute chopped parsley leaves in place of fresh basil.
  • Bakers trick: Preheat the oven 25 degrees hotter than the recipe requires. Just after you place the filled muffin tins in the oven and close the door to bake, lower to the regular temperature, in this case from 375°F. to 350°F.
  • A cookie scoop like this (affiliate link) comes in mighty handy for portioning muffin and cookie batters.

What is white whole wheat flour? Why use it in savory goat cheese muffins?

Ground from white wheat berries instead of hard red wheat berries, white whole wheat flour (affiliate link) includes the bran, germ and endosperm of the wheat grain, but has a sweeter, lighter flavor and color than regular whole wheat flour.

    Do you think these would work with gluten free flour? They sound so wonderful. Reply · 21 May, 2020

    • Yes, I’m sure these muffins would come out close to the same substituting a GF flour blend. Which blend is your favorite? Some GF folks have definite opinions. Reply · 21 May, 2020
