Savory Bacon Cheddar Muffins

Recipe Image Not AvailableThese are absolutely the best bread item we've tasted since changing our diet. The flavor is excellent; the "mouth feel" is spot on. Adam and I suspect even our carb-loving friends wouldn't guess these are low-carb muffins made without grain.

⅔ c almond butter (6 oz)
6 eggs
1½ t honey
¼ c almond milk
¼ t salt
2 t baking powder
¼ lb bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 c grated Cheddar cheese (4 oz), divided
1 scallion, sliced into rings

  1. Beat together almond butter, eggs, honey, almond milk, salt, and baking powder with bacon and ¾ c cheese.
  2. Divide batter evenly among 6 greased jumbo muffin cups. Top with remaining cheese and scallion rings.
  3. Bake at 350°F for 55-60 min or until browned and set.
