Ingredients

  • 1 cup oat flour
  • 1 cup almond meal

  • ¼ cup oil - olive or coconut
  • 3 rashers lean bacon - cooked and diced
  • 1 large tomato - chopped
  • ½ red onion - diced and cooked
  • ½ - 1 cup grated cheese

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 180℃ and line a muffin tray with patty pans or grease well.
  • Finely chop the onion and cook it in a non stick pan with the bacon, then dice the bacon once cooled and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine the oat flour, almond meal, baking powder and salt.
  • Lightly whisk the eggs in a medium sized bowl and mix in the milk and oil.
  • Fold the wet ingredients into the dry and lightly combine. Add the cheese, tomato, onion and bacon and mix through.

  • Cool on a cooling rack and enjoy.

Notes

The muffins will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for a few days.
 
Make your own oat flour - it only takes a few seconds to grind whole oats in a blender.
 
Add your favourite herbs for extra flavour – Italian or mixed herbs work best.
