You'll quickly become a morning person when you try these Cottage Cheese Breakfast Muffins. This gluten free breakfast is unlike any other. With every bite, you'll have a bit of cheese, ham, and green onions, and they all work perfectly together. You can easily make these breakfast muffins ahead of time and then warm them up when you're in need of a quick breakfast-on-the-go. Because this will become your favorite gluten free breakfast, you need to make these muffins as soon as possible.


This mixture will stick to paper muffin cups. If you wish to use cups instead of baking right in the muffin pan, use foil cups and spray with cooking spray for best results.


You may substitute cooked and crumbled turkey bacon for the ham, or omit the meat completely. If using no meat, add ¼ teaspoon smoked paprika for additional flavor.


Your family will love when you make one of these Gluten Free Cinnamon Roll Recipes!

  • 2/3 cup low-fat cottage cheese
  • 1/4 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup gluten free all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup almond meal
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 cup grated low-fat cheddar cheese
