Savoury Spinach And Feta Muffins – gluten-free, grain-free, low carb and primal

So tonight hubby whipped me up a quick and easy primal dinner of spinach, tomato and feta omelette in the ever trusty Breville omelette maker. I always try to have a block of frozen spinach on hand to add some green in an emergency however, a whole block of spinach two omelettes do not need!

Hmmm, what am I going to do with all this surplus spinach? I know, Savoury Muffins!

These muffins use coconut flour as the base, which I greatly favour over almond flour as it gives a better and more realistic consistency. You could easily leave out the feta or replace it with cherry tomatoes to make a paleo version.

INGREDIENTS

. 4 eggs
. 1/4 cup olive oil
. 1/4 cup water
. 1/2 tspn garlic powder
. 1/2 tspn dried thyme
. Cracked pepper
. 1/3 cup coconut flour
. 1/2 tspn baking powder
. 3 – 4 tbspn frozen spinach, defrosted in microwave according to instructions
. 100 g goats feta, crumbled

METHOD

1. Preheat oven to 200 dc and line a muffin tray with 8 paper cases
2. Whisk first 8 ingredients together until a smooth batter is formed
3. Add in spinach and feta and stir gently to combine
4. Spoon into muffin cases and bake for 15 – 18 min until just brown on top and when a skewer inserted comes out clean

These were actually excellent. I’m really looking forward to having these for a quick and easy brekkie tomorrow. I’m super, super pleased with them, yay, a gluten free success!
