These cheesy cauliflower muffins are savory, low carb, gluten-free and delicious. Also, unlike other cauliflower recipes, you don’t need to dry out the cauliflower.


These muffins are so easy to make. First, you need to finely chop cauliflower florets in a food processor.

These cheesy cauliflower muffins make a good snack, appetizer, side dish, meal, etc. After all the weekend indulgences, these were a guilt-free way to start my week and keep me away from the large bag of Halloween candy calling my name.

Cheesy Cauliflower Muffins Recipe
These low carb, gluten-free, savory muffins are made with cauliflower and cheese. They are great as an appetizer, snack, side dish or a quick meal.



INGREDIENTS:

  •  3 cups finely chopped raw cauliflower florets approximately 1/2 a head of cauliflower
  •  2 large eggs
  •  1 cup shredded cheddar cheese divided
  •  1/4 cup  almond flour
  •  1/2 tsp baking powder
  •  1/2 tsp dry Italian seasoning herb blend
  •  1/4 tsp onion powder
  •  1/4 tsp garlic powder

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a cupcake/muffin pan with cupcake liners. I prefer to use parchment cupcake liners as the muffins will not stick to them at all.
  2. Combine cauliflower, eggs, 1/2 cup cheese, almond flour, baking powder, Italian seasoning, onion powder and garlic powder. Mix with a large spoon or spatula until smooth.
  3. Using an ice cream scooper, scoop batter into muffin cups, about 2/3 full. You should be able to fill 11 liners. Sprinkle 1/2 cup of shredded cheese over muffins.
  4. Bake for 20-25 minutes until muffins are completely cooked and no longer wet to the touch. If desired, garnish with fresh chopped parsley before serving.
