Cheese Muffins | Slimming World Recipe

Delicious low fat 2 Syn cheese muffins.. Perfect for Breakfast, Lunch or just a cheeky snack.

Today I have my baking hat on and I had some leftover Quark in the fridge. One of the questions I receive often is “What can I do with this weird Quark stuff?” Quark is slightly odd but it is amazing for creating sauces and baking too. I was really craving something savoury and cheesy so I have created these bad boys for you to try. They are just 2 Syns each if you allow for your Healthy Extra allowance.

The whole recipe uses 3 Healthy extra A allowances so I will let you divide and eat accordingly. I used 30% less fat Extra Mature cheddar but you are welcome to use the cheese you prefer. The recipe could easily take a little more or less cheese. If you don’t use the Muffins as a healthy extra choice please add 1 Syn per muffin.

They are very easy to make and only require 1 bowl, 1 muffin tin, ideally an electric hand mixer, kitchen scales and 1 cheese grater.

These muffins will keep for 3 to 4 days in the fridge as long as you keep them in an air tight container. Kept out of the fridge probably 2 days. But I don’t think they will be around for very long in this house… These would be a perfect recipe to create for Group taster sessions.
