Cottage Cheese Muffins

Yes! Savoury muffins! First time for me and I must admit, it takes a while to get used to muffins not being sweet! đŸ™‚ These came out rather well and are super quick to make once you have the ingredients together. Can make a nice starter for a dinner or some finger food/snack. No beating or whisking and all done very fast!

1 cup – cottage cheese, crumbled

1 cup – almonds, ground fine

1/4 cup – flour

1 tsp – baking powder

1/2 tsp – salt

1/4 cup – sun-dried tomatoes (in oil), chopped

1/4 cup – basil, chopped (I used the dry chopped leaves that comes in a bottle)

1/4 cup – water

4 – eggs, slightly beaten

3/4 cup – parmesan cheese

Place everything in a bowl except the cheese. Do not beat too much and prepare the muffin cups. Spoon the batter into the muffin cups and sprinkle the cheese over.

Bake at 400 F (204 C) for 30-35 minutes.

PS. Forgot to mention that I got this recipe at the site managed by Heidi Swanson, who dishes out recipes on vegetarian and healthy food. Check out her site for some cool tips and health facts.
