A couple of weeks ago, a friend of mine posted this video for Garlic Bread Muffins on Facebook by Tastemade UK:
DROOL!!! I knew immediately that I needed to make a low-carb version of these biscuits. After a couple of experimental batches, I finally perfected the ingredient ratios!
5 oz. unsalted butter
Garlic Salt (I use Trader Joe's - 0 carbs)
10 g cilantro
1/2 cup flaxseed meal
1/4 cup almond flour
3 tbsp oat fiber
1.5 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
2 tbsp oil (I use olive or coconut)
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup shredded cheese + dozen small slices
Preheat oven to 350° F. Melt the butter in a saucepan. Add the garlic salt and cilantro and simmer for a few minutes. Set aside. Mix together the flaxseed meal, almond flour, oat fiber, baking powder, and salt. In a separate bowl, beat together the oil, heavy cream, and shredded cheese. Add to the flour mixture.
Fill the bottoms of the cupcake tin with about 1/2 of the flour. Next, place a slice of cheese on top of the dough and a spoonful of the garlic butter.
Pour the rest of the batter over the cheese and then top with the remainder of the butter. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Let cool, and enjoy!
