EDIT: Apologies to any one who read the "whole wheat flour" in the cooking instructions; I merely copied the directions from the aforementioned site and did not edit the instructions to list that you should use the King Arthur Gluten Free Flour. I assure you, when using this particular ingredient, this recipe is gluten free. Again, my apologies.

Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    2/3 cup non-fat cottage cheese
    1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese + 1 T for topping muffins if desired
    1/4 cup King Arthur Gluten Free flour
    2/3 cup almond meal
    1 tsp. baking powder
    1/2 tsp. salt
    3 T water
    4 eggs, beaten
    3 strips bacon, cooked until crisp, fat blotted with paper towel, then crumbled
    3 T thinly sliced green onion (scallions)

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 F.

In mixing bowl, combine cottage cheese, parmesan cheese, *gluten-free flour*, almond meal, salt, water, and beaten egg. Mix well. Gently mix in crumbled bacon and green onion, until well distributed in batter.

Spray silicone muffin cups with nonstick spray, or use foil muffin liners (I would spray those also.) Fill muffin cups 3/4 full, topping with a small amount of Parmesan cheese if desired. (I made it both ways in my experiments and didn't think the parmesan on top was really essential.) Bake 25 -30 minutes, until muffins are firm and lightly browned. Serve hot or room temperature.

Muffins can be refrigerated and reheated in the microwave. (I cut in half crosswise before heating. Be very careful not to microwave more than about a minute, or they will become tough.) I haven't tried freezing them, but I would imagine they will freeze well.

    If you read the ingredient list it states king arthur gluten free flour. That would indeed make them gluten free!

    Thank you for noticing that. I forgot to edit the instructions to include the use of the GF flour instead of the whole wheat flour used in the original recipe.

  • What exactly is almond meal and can something else be substituted? I don't need it to be gluten free so any substitution would be fine. Thanks. - 2/3/11

    Almond meal is basically ground up almonds, I use Bob's Red Mill Almond Flour/Meal. I haven't substituted this ingredient, personally, but you could probably do a search online and see what people suggest. Perhaps just more GF flour mix (but you may want to incorporate some xanthan gum then).
