  • 4 eggs large
  • 1.5 cups / 150g almond flour
  • 1.5 cups / 170g mature cheddar grated / shredded
  • 3.5 oz / 100g broccoli chopped very finely
  • ¼ cup / 60g natural yoghurt
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp onion powder


  • Preheat the oven to 180 C /350 F and line a muffin pan with paper cups (or grease a silicone muffin mould).
  • Blend the eggs in a food processor or with a handheld electric mixer until frothy and pale in colour (2 minutes).
  • Add the almond flour, grated cheddar, natural yoghurt, baking powder, garlic powder and onion powder and blend until well-combined.
  • Last, stir in the chopped broccoli.
  • Fill the batter into 8 paper cups or your prepared silicone mould and sprinkle a little more cheddar over the top (optional).
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean. If necessary, loosely place aluminium paper over the tops during the last 5 minutes of baking to prevent excessive browning.



Net carbs: 3.7g per cheese muffin. Makes 8 muffins. 
I used mature cheddar, but another cheese such as Gouda or Monterey Jack would also work well. 
The cheddar was pre-shredded. If you decide to grate it yourself, I recommend measuring in weight rather than cups to have a more accurate result. 
You could replace the broccoli with another vegetable such as zucchini or red peppers (both pre-roasted) or cauliflower. 
Store in the fridge for up to 5 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
