Very flavorful cheese muffins are keto, low carb and gluten free. They are perfect for breakfast with eggs and avocado, or for dinner with chili.
I really like these low carb, keto cheese muffins. In fact, I like them a little too much. It’s very difficult for me to stop at just one! They are just so incredibly cheesy and flavorful. The combination of cheese, garlic and cayenne is really good. Almost addictive.
What flour to use in keto cheese muffins
I use almond flour in this recipe. Baking with almond flour is so easy. I love how it produces results that are comparable to whole-wheat baked goods. Just make sure you use blanched, finely ground almond flour and not coarse almond meal. I usually use Bob’s Red Mill almond flour when I make this recipe.
How to serve keto cheese muffins
I like to have them for breakfast. They’re wonderful on their own with my cup of morning coffee. They are even better with some butter. They’re also great topped with poached eggs or mashed avocado! Yum. Sometimes I use these keto cheese muffins as a roll of sorts, serving them with chili or with vegetable beef soup for dinner.
Is this a healthy recipe?
I think it is. The main ingredients here are almond flour, eggs, and cheese. Almond flour is very healthy. Eggs are nutritious. And cheese, according to current research, appears to be harmless for most healthy people.
What about leftovers?
You can keep leftovers of these keto cheese muffins in the fridge, in an airtight container, for 4-5 days. Reheat them in the microwave on 50% power, starting with 10 seconds per side. You can also freeze them in freezer bags for up to 3 months.
