Low-Carb Cottage Cheese Breakfast Muffins with Bacon
Low-Carb Cottage Cheese Breakfast Muffins with Bacon have egg, Parmesan, almond flour, and a tiny bit of white whole wheat flour. See suggestions to replace the flour for a version that’s Keto and gluten-free.
And these Cottage Cheese Breakfast Muffins with Bacon were definitely a success! And even with the small amount of flour, there are only 7 net carbs per muffin, and 15 grams of protein! Since I first posted this recipe I’ve made these delicious breakfast muffins over and over to keep in the fridge for a grab-and-go breakfast. And these tasty high protein breakfast muffins have been a hit with everyone who tries them!
