These savoury muffins are packed full of flavour. The trick to making them really special is by roasting the cauliflower first which results in a rich caramelised flavour.

These keto-friendly muffins freeze really well so are a great make-ahead snack. They’re delicious served on their own with a slather of butter, or create delicious keto croutons by crumbling them over your favorite salad.

Ingredients (makes 10 muffins)

  • 1 small cauliflower (300 g/ 10.6 oz)
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (30 ml)
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 1/4 cups almond flour (125 g/ 4.4 oz)
  • 2 tbsp whole psyllium husks (8 g/ 0.3 oz)
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 tsp gluten-free baking powder
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup organic full-fat milk (60 ml) - see note below
  • 1/4 cup water (60 ml)
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese (113 g/ 4 oz)
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese (45 g/ 1.6 oz)

Note: Although milk is typically not allowed on a keto diet due to the relatively high carb count, a small amount of organic full-fat can be used. Instead of full-fat milk you can use 2 tablespoons (30 ml) of heavy whipping cream and 2 tablespoons (30 ml) of water. Or you can substitute it with 1/4 cup of unsweetened almond milk or cashew milk.

these muffins are delicious.  I used cream/water instead of milk and put mozzarella instead of parmesan.   The muffins are firm.  They're great for lunch.
