Cheese, Chive and Onion Muffin (Coconut Flour)

Gluten Free, Low Carb, Vegetarian | July 3, 2012 | By

This is now my favourite savoury muffin recipe as I just love the cheese and onion flavour combinations and this stops any weakness that I may have for a cheese and onion roll/pastry.  It has the same flavour tastes, with none of that bad, bad pastry.  Even better, is that because this is made out of coconut flour it is very filling and is perfect for keeping you going all morning.   They also make a great side dish to tomato soup..but one is enough to fill you up with a bowl of soup too!

My tip is to bake a batch of them and keep them in the freezer.  Take one out before you go to work and by the time you get there, it should be ready to eat (or you can zap it in the microwave for a hot treat).  You are then set for the day!

    Very good muffins, I might try with a little smoked paprika next time. I made these in mini muffin cups and baked for 10mins, a little too small so I definitely recommend regular muffin size and double or triple the recipe. Thanks again for a good recipe! 🙂
