Total Time: 35 minutes

Servings: 8


  • 3/4 cup low-fat milk 
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 eggs 
  • 1/4 cup honey 
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 3/4 cup shredded Gruyere cheese plus 1/4 cup for sprinkling on top of muffins

Here's how to make them:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line eight cups of a muffin tin with paper liners (or coat with non-stick cooking spray).  
  2. Whisk together the milk, butter, eggs and honey in a large mixing bowl. Stir in the flour, baking powder, salt, chives and cheese, setting aside 1/4 cup of Gruyere for sprinkling on top of muffins.

  4. Turn oven to broil and broil muffins for another 2-3 minutes until cheese is melted and lightly browned.
