Breakfast/ Gluten Free/ Low Carb/ Vegetarian

Broccoli & Cheddar Cheese Muffins (Coconut Flour)

A savoury, low carb and gluten free muffin that combines broccoli and cheese but in a muffin form that is perfect dipped in a tomato soup.  Or as a snack! 

The Chief Taster is currently having a soup fetish and wanted a healthy bread roll to go with his soup.   So I thought I’d make a savoury muffin made with coconut flour to go with his soup demands.  If you like the flavour combination of broccoli and cheese and wondered what it would be like in muffin form then, voila!  The broccoli is not too overpowering and the Chief Taster liked these mainly because he could taste the cheese more.  Perhaps these muffins could be a way to sneak broccoli into your diet?

You could always play around with the herb flavourings so look upon the oregano, garlic and onion powder as optional.  I enjoyed the herbs that I used but you might prefer another combination.

    I will definitely be trying these, if I had broccoli in the fridge right now I would start, but it’s on the shopping list for tomorrow.

      Hope you enjoy them! I made some mini savoury muffins with zucchini last month for a ladies afternoon tea. They were delicious and the plate disappeared!
