I absolutely love savory muffins and these simple AIP and Paleo Green Olive Basil Muffins check all the boxes.
When you are egg-free, dairy-free, and gluten-free, savory muffins are a great replacement for when you are craving bread. Filled with basil, thyme, and green olives, these nourishing muffins are so flavorful and are a perfect side to soup, a skillet, or as an afternoon snack.
