Delectable soft, fluffy, Savory muffins with cherry tomatoes and cheese with seasonings makes this as one of the perfect breakfast/snack muffins. These are easy to prepare and requires less ingredients.

Since both kid and myself have sweet tooth, I do my best to make Savory muffins as alternative to satisfy the hunger pangs. This can be made healthier by substituting All purpose flour with wheat flour. I have made this with APF, you can use mix of flours too.

Do try and let me know how much you loved them the way I did 😉
