  • 200 gms almond meal
  • 1 tspn baking powder
  • 50 gms coconut flour
  • 200 gms full fat sour cream
  • 150-200 gms full fat tasty cheese
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil-EVOO
  • ¼ cup yoghurt water/almond milk
  • ¼ cup chopped chives
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Mix all dry ingredients together in a medium bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well until combined.
  • Spoon mixture into a prepared muffin tray. This makes approximately 14 medium sized muffins. Smooth the top of the muffins slightly.
  • Bake for between 15-18 minutes or until cooked on the inside, taking care not to overcook.
  • Allow to cool in the muffin pan.
  • Eat fresh or freeze for convenience.
  • *To make yoghurt water, mix 1 tablespoon of Greek Yoghurt with water.

Serving Suggestions-

  • Serve warm with butter.
  • Eat hot straight from the oven or eat cold.


  • Add 1 teaspoon of paprika and/or ½ teaspoon of garlic powder for a different flavor.
  • 1/2 teaspoon of mustard powder would compliment these especially if you omit the chives.
  • Omit chives and add jalapenos for a delicious alternative.
  • Vary the amount of cheese in these to taste. The muffins displayed are cheesier so use the full 200 gms of cheese.
