Hi!  I'm Noreen, wife, mother of two amazing, almost grown, daughters, content creator, cook, baker and sister in Christ. Welcome to my Kitchen!   I hope you stick around, enjoy the recipes and share them with those you love!

One of the downfalls of doing keto or a low carb diet is that you have to give up bread, sugar and other yummy things that will mess up with your success of losing weight and getting healthy.  Today I am sharing with you a recipe for a muffin style bread that is keto friendly/low carb and delicious!  These are going to fit a need that you are going to be happy to fill!  #keto #muffins #lowcarb #noreenskitchen

The flour replacer here is ground almonds.  I am using super fine ground almond flour.  I recommend that you either sift it or whisk the lumps out before starting.  I like to keep this in the freezer so it will not go rancid.   The other main ingredient here is eggs.  Cheese is added as a binder and a flavorizer, but be sure not to leave it out or these muffins won't hold together as well.  

Garlic Cheese Muffins (low carb)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Prepare a muffin tin with either baking cups or by spraying or brushing with coconut oil.

Combine dry ingredients and whisk well to incorporate.  Set aside.

In a large bowl, combine eggs, sour cream and melted butter.  Whisk well until smooth.

Add dry ingredients and cheese to wet ingredients.  Stir well to combine, being sure there are no pockets of dry flour.

Scoop, scant ¼ cups of batter into muffin tins, distributing as evenly as possible. 

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until the muffins are risen slightly and golden brown.

Remove from oven and allow to rest in the pan for 10 minutes before removing to a rack to cool completely.

These can be split and used as a “biscuit” or as an accompaniment to soups or stews.

Store muffins in an airtight container for up to three days.  These should not be made in advance and they should not be frozen.  This recipe is best prepared on the day you wish to enjoy them and are fine for about two days after that.

Step by Step Instructions

Think of the possibilities.  How about a sausage muffin for breakfast.  Eat these with a soup or stew or just as a snack with some strawberry chia jam  that is sugar free and full of fiber!  The possibilities are great here!

 I hope you give these garlic, cheese muffins a try sometime soon and I hope you love them!

Happy Eating!

Mix up the dry ingredients first then whisk together the eggs, sour cream and cheese.  Then marry all the ingredients together.  This will make a thick batter that you will then divide between 12 muffin cups.  I have used silicone liners but you can feel free to use paper or none at all.  These muffins will hold up well in any case.

Bake these at 400 degrees for 25 minutes and then remove from the oven but be sure to allow them to cool in the pan for 10 minutes.  This will help to stabilize the muffin and help it keep its shape.  Now you are ready to enjoy.  I love to split these and make a bacon sandwich with them.  They are filling and satisfying and make you feel like you are eating a corn muffin.  They have a very similar texture to a corn muffin and I think you are going to really enjoy them.
