Recipe for low-carb mini muffins
Recipe’s for 12 mini muffins (or less depend on molds). Preparation time is 20 minutes, plus cooking 20, meaning 40 minutes in total.
- 1/2 of a cauliflower (medium sized)
- 2 cups of washed and cut kale
- 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese, plus more for garnishing
- 1/4 cup sun dried tomatoes
- 1/4 cup egg whites
- 1/8 cup Cottage cheese
- sunflower seeds for garnish
- a few tablespoons of olive oil
Also you’ll need food processor and mold for mini muffins.
Preparation: As usual, turn the oven on and preheat to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Then, we’ll prepare the cauliflower.
Cut off the stem of the cauliflower. Then separate the cauliflower into small florets. Put it in the food processor and pulse until it looks like grains of rice. Remove from the food processor and cook in microwave for 6 minutes. You don’t need to cover it.
While the cauliflower is microwaving, you can prepare more of the filling. In a food processor, pulse the kale until it becomes large chunks. Then, add in the sun dried tomatoes and pulse. When it’s all shredded, add in the cheese and repeat until everything is shredded.
When the cauliflower is done microwaving, add in the kale mixture to the cauliflower. Pour in the egg whites, cottage cheese, and mix together with a spoon.
After your mixture is complete, grease your muffin mold with olive oil and then begin filling it! When you finished filling all the cups, garnish with cheese and sunflower seeds.
When they’re all done, put into the oven for about 20 minutes, or until the tops begin to brown.
