I am always looking for an on the go snack that is tasty and satisfying. There is a bakery near my house that makes delicious savory muffins with cheese and vegetables, that they call pizza muffins, that are delicious although I am quite certain would derail my diet. I decided to try and adapt a traditional muffin recipe to make my own savory muffins and came up with these savory red pepper feta muffins. This is a recipe I think I will definitely come back to and switch up the herbs, vegetables, and cheese to play around with the flavors.
