As well as being great for a nutritious afternoon snack, these stuffed wheat-free muffins make for great, easy canapés.

  2. Melt the butter in a frying pan, add the mushrooms and fry for 10 mins until golden.
  3. Mix the eggs, milk, mustard and cheese into the mushrooms and season. Pour into the lined muffins and bake for 10-15 mins until risen and set.

Top tips for making wheat-free muffins

If you find that these muffins are a little dense, use a sprinkle of baking powder in the mixture. This will make the muffins light and fluffy as baking powder gives all types of dough extra rise.
