Easy muffins with MEDITERANEO cheese
- 10 tablespoons plain white flour
- 10 tablespoons cornmeal
- 1 packet baking powder
- 3 eggs
- 1 cup oil
- 250 grams (or more) MEDITERANEO cheese
- sesame or cumin seeds, if desired
Mix the two types of flour, baking powder, oil and eggs. The mixture should not be combined with a mixer, but only lightly, using a mixing spoon. Add a pack of coarsely crumbled MEDITERANEO cheese, as the chunks of cheese will give a unique texture to the muffins.
When the mixture is well combined, pour it into a muffin tray, sprinkle with sesame or cumin seeds, and bake in a preheated oven at 200 degrees for about 30 minutes.
When they get golden in colour, the muffins are ready to be enjoyed for breakfast, snack or dinner.
Enhance the experience by serving them with ABT yoghurt, or Poppy chocolate milk for the kids.

Milk is one of the most important and most complete foods in children’s nutrition.
From the age of two, children should consume about half a litre of milk or dairy products a day.
A word from an expertCow’s milk and dairy products are, for the vast majority of children, safe and healthy food! Milk and dairy products are an excellent source of calcium, which is one of the most important minerals for a child’s growth and development – explains our renowned expert, paediatrician Tatjana Vukomanović and adds:
It would be best if the baby’s first contact with cow’s milk was yoghurt! Fermented dairy products, such as yoghurt, contain beneficial probiotic bacteria that are extremely important for children’s health (this certainly applies to adults as well). They help digestion, but also help a child build a healthy immune system. Everything that applies to yoghurt also applies to curdled milk! Cheese spreads should also be included in children’s diet. It is necessary to take care that it is free of additives, preservatives and artificial flavours – so Sirko and A la Kajmak are an excellent choice. These products are made from the highest quality local milk, by a modern technological process.
VITAMINSMilk is rich in B vitamins, and B12 is especially important, as it helps create red blood cells. Vitamin A is responsible for good eyesight and healthy skin, and vitamin D strengthens immunity and fights viruses.
MINERALSMilk and dairy products are the richest sources of an important mineral – calcium. In our body, as much as 99% of calcium is stored in bones and teeth.
PROTEINSOne of the main nutrients that make milk extremely important for health is protein. Milk contains two types of protein – casein and whey protein. Casein is a protein that dominates in milk, about 80% of the total protein in milk is from this group. Whey protein makes up 20% of the total value of protein in milk. This protein greatly contributes to the growth and maintenance of muscle mass.
