Savory Mediterranean Muffins Recipe Loaded With Sundried Tomatoes, Feta & Olives

Sundried tomatoes, feta and black olives are the trifecta of Mediterranean goodness. Savory, salty and a little bit sweet, this Mediterranean combination is the foundation of this yummy muffin recipe inspired by Tastingtable.com.

To make these moist savory muffins you will need 00 flour (see Recipe Notes), baking soda, salt, black pepper, sundried tomatoes in oil, feta cheese (read about the health benefits of feta), black olives, an egg, whole milk, Greek yogurt, lemon juice, olive oil and optional fresh basil. The ingredients are mixed together and baked until tender and golden, about 15 minutes. So quick and easy!

These deliciously satisfying muffins, served warm with a sliver of butter, make a great addition to any lunch or dinner. Or just grab one – at room temperature – as a quick Mediterranean-inspired snack. This muffins would also be a wonderful addition to a charcuterie board.

Recipe Notes

  • 00 flour is a finely ground Italian flour. You can substitute bread flour if you can’t find it.
  • Instead of sundried tomatoes in oil, I added a splash of olive oil to regular sundried tomatoes.
  • Add some garlic to amp up the Mediterranean flavor.
  • Avoid opening the oven during the first 15 minutes of baking time.

Here’s how to make it:

  1. Mix the flour, baking soda, salt, and black pepper together. Add the sundried tomatoes, feta and olives to the dry mixture and blend well.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, yogurt, lemon juice, and oil. Add the basil, if desired.
  3. Blend the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients and stir. The batter will be dense, and slightly lumpy. Do not over-stir.
  4. Line a 6-muffin tin with paper muffin cups and coat with nonstick cooking spray. Divide the batter evenly among the cups. Each of the cups should be about three-quarters full.
  5. Place in a preheated 425-degree F oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the tops are starting to brown and a toothpick comes out clean.
  6. Let the pan sit for about 5 minutes and then remove the muffins. Let them cool for at least 15 more minutes on a wire rack before serving warm or at room temperature.
