Grain-Free Broccoli & Cheddar Cheese Muffins
These delicious, moist grain-free muffins are great for either breakfast on the run or as mid-morning snack pre/post workout. I think it’s important to start the day off right, with some greens with your eggs!
- 10 eggs large, beaten
- 150 g broccoli florets cut into bite size pieces
- 150 g cheddar cheese grated
- 2 tsp Dijon mustard
- 40 g coconut flour I recommend The Groovy Food Company
- 2 tsp baking powder
- sea salt
- white pepper
- Pre-heat the oven to 375°F, gas mark 5, 200°C (180°C fan-assisted).
- Line a 12 hole muffin tray with tulip muffin cases or muffin cases (preferably silicone ones, to prevent sticking).
- Cut the florets into bite size pieces without too much of the stalk, set aside.
- Whisk the eggs in a mixing bowl with a hand whisk or fork. Add the Dijon mustard and season with sea salt and white pepper.
- Add the coconut flour and baking powder to the egg mixture and blend until smooth.
- Then add the grated cheddar cheese and broccoli and mix all together.
- Spoon or pipe the mixture into the muffin cases and bake in a pre-heated oven for 25 minutes.
- Take out of the oven once cooked and leave to cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes.

LISA’S TIP – I love tulip muffin cases, you will find using regular muffin cases, when you peel them away from the mixture it will stuck to the paper. So I often opt for this elegant option as the paper is almost like parchment paper. Also they look good, like you’ve made a professional muffin that you would find in a coffee shop. Serve these straight from the oven with a delicate tomato & beetroot salad! Anytime of the day, on the go delight that’s great for kids or grown-ups alike! Perfect for lunchboxes, picnics, or delicious served with a soup. Rather than the broccoli, which serves to really bulk up the vegetable mixture, you can grate or dice left over potatoes or sweet potatoes. You can use almost any vegetables you like, or whatever is seasonal or not being used in your vegetable draw like kale, spinach, cauliflower. The list is endless!
