I am doing 3 lunchboxes every day at the moment and coming up with new and inventive stuff everyone will eat is hard. There are only so many sandwiches I can make and wraps I can fill before I am told how boring they become. Queue my muffins. They are a cross between a scone, a muffin and bread. Sooo delicious, the basic recipe you can use and then add what you want for extra flavours.  They have super, finely cut chorizo tucked away inside as well as herbs and cheese. My kids and husband love ‘em!
