Nearly healthy pumpkin cheese muffins

I bought new spelt flour. The next days I am going to to test a recipe on a special bread: the spelt dough needs 18 hours to develope and it is baked in a cast iron pot with lid on. But not now. Now I had to do some fridge sweeping first because tomorrow is garbage day and husband has something to do about the garbage in this evening. Time to get the garbage ready.

I used some left over fridge inhabitants for this kind of muffin:

100 g  butternut, weight of the medium grated and pressed (in kitchen paper towel) pumpkin
130 g spelt flour ( Dinkel, 630er) - can be substituted with common wheat flour
100 g greek feta cheese (sheep cheese) a little bit aged... now crumbled
125 g yoghurt (3.5 fat), 2 days over the limit
1 green onion, trimmed, split lengthwise and sliced, need to buy new onions tomorrow
1 small pointed red bell pepper, diced in small cubes
1 garlic glove, minced
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 eggs, (2 whole eggs + 1 yolk)
1/2 teaspoon chilli powder, smoked
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2  teaspoon baking powder
1 good pinch salt
1 good pinch vanilla-sugar (just grind dried leftover pieces  of vanillapods with sugar in an electric mill)
1 pinch oregano, powdered
1 pinch cumin, powdered
black sesame seeds for decoration

Sieve spelt flour with soda and baking powder, add sugar, salt, spices, vegetables, cheese. Mix yoghurt with oil and eggs and just incorporate in flour and vegetables for a short time. Do it by hand and use a spatule. Don't overdo batter.
in the baking bowl, crumbled cheese left upperside with chilli

muffin molds (silicon)
Fill batter in 6  buttered muffin molds or ramekins. Sprinkle with sesame. Bake at 180 Celsius for 25 min -30 minutes.
muffin cut open and quality checked, soft and juicy
Husband enjoyed the muffin halves decorated with a slice of serrano bacon and a slice chorizo (before taking care of the garbage).

A most delicious result of fridge sweeping ;-)
It looks really good! I am very curious about the spelt dough...
