Tomato & Bacon Muffins (21DSD, Paleo & SCD)

Are you someone who goes through phases?  I think most of us can relate to the gym phase, the running phase (still going with that one) or the craft phase.  (I really must finish that 40th birthday quilt!)
After being on the 21 Day Sugar Detox for a couple of weeks now, I realise I've been in a sweets phase my whole life!  When I baked as a teenager the only savory thing we made was pizza.  I'm really not a savory person.  I actually envy those people who really prefer savory over sweet; they don't seem to be as addicted as us sweets lovers.  :)
This detox has been good for me to focus on savory rather than sweet.  I'm enjoying trying new meals for dinner and my kids were so excited to hear I was making savory muffins!  (Guilty mother moment - I don't think I've EVER made them savory muffins before!  Poor kids.  :)

  1. This puts such an interesting spin on muffins! Can't wait to try.


  2. I know this recipe was posted months ago but I just made it for my 21 day sugar detox dinner tonight and they are so so so so so good! I'm definitely going to make these often. They are easily adaptable too with additional herbs, turmeric, shredded zucchini, whatever. This was so yummy! Thanks for sharing :-)

    1. So glad you loved them! Thanks for stopping back and letting me know. 😃

  3. Delicious! And works with our very tricky diet plan! Even my picky teenager likes them. 😃 I added chopped artichoke hearts and grated zucchini. Yum!
