Update, Mar 2018 – Images and post re-edited in March 2018 to optimize for search engines.

This month’s Home Bakers Challenge is hosted by Shama and she gave us 6 recipes to choose from. Vegetable muffins from the list got my attention. I was meaning to bake savory muffins for some time and as soon as I saw the list, I knew what I was baking. I baked these savory vegetable muffins yesterday and I am not sure if I like them or not. Savory muffins were good but my sweet tooth craved for some sweet. Eventually I conclude, I prefer sweet muffins over the savory muffins. These vegetables muffins are perfect for people who do not have a sweet tooth.
