Savoury pepperoni and cheese muffins
My youngest daughter is not a "baker" and pretty much would prefer not to have to be in the kitchen when cooking is involved. However, this simple and tasty recipe piqued her interest and she helped me make a batch in less than 30 minutes. The muffins can be made in advance and frozen for an easy and tasty lunch - the taste of pizza that kids (and adults) love, without the added processed food ingredients.
This recipe makes 10 to 12 medium sized muffins or 6-8 larger ones.

- 1 cup chopped pepperoni
- 1 small onion chopped

How to make Pizza Muffins
- Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease muffin tins or try re-usable silicone baking cups in the muffin tins.

- Stir in the flour and baking powder and blend well. Spoon into the muffin tins/baking cups and bake for 20-25 minutes until lightly browned. Serve hot or cold. Store in fridge or freeze until required.
