Cheese Muffins
« on: 19 August 2013, 03:51:59 PM »
made these today and they were really nice. Adapted from the original peanut butter muffins on the old forum.


90g butter
2g splenda (or to taste) I dont like much sweetness.
2 eggs
flavouring - I added a bit of garlic salt and paprika.
75g ground almonds.
1/4 tsp baking powder.
50g mature cheddar finely grated
Pepper (no salt as butter and cheese are salty)
Cream the butter and splenda. Add eggs and whisk until light and fluffy. mix in almonds, baking powder and flavourings and cheese. I filled a yorkshire pudding tin and filled 10 of the compartments. bake in a hot oven for about 15 mins. I do have a picture but not sure how to show it if anyone can advise.

Edited, lol I forgot the cheese!

Just noticed Pattie's Stilton muffins and these are quite similar. They are quite small, but I guess you can make bigger ones in a muffin tin but cook for longer. What I like about these are they are not eggy at all, really light and fluffy.

Hi Penabby

They look yummy! 

If you scroll further down the Stilton and Tomato muffin thread I subsequently made Parmesan, sun dried tomato and fresh basil muffins.

Great idea for breakfasts too!  I use silicone cup cake moulds to make mine.

Thanks Patti, they are really nice. I worked out the carbs to be around 18 for the whole recipe. Like you said Patti theres not much suvoury stuff that you can pack up for lunch, picnics and whatnot. Really nice bread substitute too. maybe to dip in soup? :)

Btw please call me Penny x

Hi Penny

How do you get 18g carb?  The only carbs I can see in there are in the ground almonds (approx 5.25g) and in the Splenda (1.96 approx) so 6.21g.  I might be missing something of course.

If you are using US or Canada-based references to work out the carb count, don't forget to subtract the fibre first, as over here fibre is classed as a carbohydrate (which it technically is, in terms of chemistry - just not a digestible one, so for our purposes it inflates the carb count needlessly!)

Your right, for some reason the site I looked at said 19g per 100g of carbs in almonds. But Ive just seen its about 6.

Made these yesterday with a small tweak, used only 50g butter & added 3 x tbsp Greek yog, used 6 x muffin cases so made them bigger. I've been eating the peanut butter muffins as a bread substitute & these cheese ones are brilliant. I've been craving 'baked' stuff recently & these are certainly hitting the mark. The only difficulty has been not eating them all in one go but as I'm using liquid sucralose with zero carbs, they're only just over 1 carb per muffin so if I really wanted to it wouldn't be that bad.  :D

I'm not quite sure why you are using sweetener of any variety in cheese muffins.  I never do.

Don't know really. It's an adaptation from the peanut butter muffins that have 12g Splenda in them. When I 1st tried making the PB ones I only used 2g but they definitely needed more so I upped it to 6g which seemed about right. When Penabby posted the cheese muffin variation it still had 2g of sweetner in it so I changed it to 2 drops of liquid sucralose & kept it in. They don't seem at all sweet but they are delicious, maybe I'll try them next time without & see if they 'need' it.  ;)

I find it odd too - I've made shedloads of savoury stuff with cheese in it over the years, mostly not at all low carb - and have NEVER seen any sugar or sweetener in such a recipe.

Well like I said, this recipe was adapted from the peanut butter muffin recipe which DID have sweetener in it. Penabby just didn't take it out when adapting the recipe for cheese & when I tried it with, I found them very nice so have (at the mo) left it in. Will try the next batch without & post the difference  :)

I'll be interested in the result.  I adore the Parmesan, sun dried tom and basil ones with no sugar..... a serious prob not eating em all warm out of the oven.
