Gluten-Free Savory Muffins

These gluten-free savory muffins are flavored with rosemary, garlic and Parmesan cheese. They’re an easy and tasty grain-free option for breakfast or snack time. 

These muffins contain plenty of cauliflower so they’re a great way to sneak in some hidden vegetables, which is particularly useful if you’ve got picky kids.

Main ingredients

These muffins call for cassava flour and if you haven’t tried baking with cassava flour yet, I highly recommend it. It’s a flour made from ground cassava root and it works particularly well in grain-free baked goods.

You can find cassava flour at some grocery stores and health food stores these days or you can order it online. Alternatively, you can substitute oat flour in this recipe if you prefer.

I used riced cauliflower in these muffins (which I purchased ready to go from the supermarket) but you can easily make cauliflower rice at home in a food processor. Just toss in some raw cauliflower and pulse it a few times until a finely chopped consistency is achieved.

Other vegetables besides cauliflower work well in this recipe too, so feel free to substitute finely chopped broccoli, asparagus, or bell peppers. Grated carrots or zucchini work nicely too.

You can also play around with the herbs in these gluten-free savory muffins. I opted for rosemary but you can substitute thyme, oregano, basil, or parsley. Either dried or fresh herbs will do, so use whatever you have on hand.
