Gluten Free Cheese Muffins

Monday, June 25, 2012

These were an experimental recipe that happened to turn out pretty damn good.  I love savoury muffins, my mum makes some really yummy ones but they are made with flour, since doing low carb for nearly 4 years it is one thing I do miss so I think these come in a pretty close 2nd! The nutritional profile is pretty good too...they certainly pack a punch!!
6 eggs
100gms melted butter
1 cup grated egmont cheese or colby, edam etc...
1/2 cup or 60gms sifted coconut flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt (if you use unsalted butter)
1 Tbsp italian seasoning
Extra grated cheese for the top - I used parmesan

Preheat oven to fan bake 180C or 350F.  Melt butter and put aside.  Break open 6 eggs and whisk them up, add the sifted coconut flour, baking powder, salt and seasoning and give it a good whisk to get all the lumps out.  Add the melted butter and combine well then add the grated cheese.  Grease a 12 cup muffin tin with a little butter and then pour batter evenly into the cups, top with a little grated parmesan and pop in the preheated oven for 18 minutes.  Should be nice and golden on top!

  3. Did you see my recipe on my blog recipe section? Sort of like yours but with almond meal as well to cut the coconut texture and flavour. I had one tonight with my bone broth vege soup.
