Gluten Free Cheese Muffins

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!!

Ingredients:
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!
