These are an absolute revelation! I was totally enamoured by an earlier cottage cheese muffin recipe I made and decided to see if I could go one better. I did! With no butter, regular cheese, sugar or gluten, you won’t believe how good these are!
The ingredients below make 9 really great-sized muffins!
Cottage Cheese and Red Onion Muffins (Gluten Free and Low Fat)
1 small red onion (chopped into very small pieces)
200g plain cottage cheese (I used light but full-fat would work)
Sea salt and paprika (to sprinkle on top)
~ Pre-heat the oven to 200°C.
~ Mix the flax seed with the milk and set to one side for about 5 minutes.
~ In the meantime, combine the flours, salt, cayenne, baking powder, salt, pepper and mustard in a bowl.
~ In a separate bowl, beat the egg and combine well with the cottage cheese. Stir in the milk/flax along with the onion. Gently combine the dry and wet ingredients.
~ Pour into the prepared tins or muffin cases. Combine the paprika and salt and sprinkle over the top. Bake in the middle of the oven for around 25 minutes, until the tops are a lovely golden brown colour. Eat warm, cut in half with butter on as a delicious snack, add to a packed lunch, or take on a picnic as part of a delicious, wholesome lunch. Enjoy!
