    Main Dish

  • Cusine



1/2 cup cottage cheese, rinsed and drained well

1/3 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese

1/4 cup white whole wheat flour

2/3 cup almond meal or almond flour

1 tsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp. salt

1 tsp. dried oregano

1 tsp. Spike Seasoning 

4 eggs, beaten

3 T water

1/2 cup diced pepperoni, either turkey or pork pepperoni will work

4 string cheese mozzarella sticks, cut into slices and some slices cut into smaller pieces


Put cottage cheese into a fine-mesh strainer and rinse with cold water, then let drain while you prep other ingredients. Preheat oven or toaster oven to 400C/200F. Spray silicone muffin cups or muffin pan with nonstick spray or olive oil. While cottage cheese drains, chop the pepperoni. Slice the string cheese mozzarella sticks, then chop some of the slices to make various-sized pieces of cheese. When the cottage cheese has drained, mix together cottage cheese, Parmesan, flour, almond meal, baking powder, salt, dried oregano, and Spike Seasoning. Beat eggs with a fork, then beat in 3 tablespoons water. Add the egg mixture to the other ingredients and stir until combined. Add the chopped pepperoni and sliced string cheese to the batter and gently stir to combine. Spoon the mixture into the sprayed baking cups of muffin tin, dividing evenly between the cups. Bake 30-35 minutes, or until the muffins are lightly browned and set. Eat while warm. You can let these cool and store for several days in the refrigerator in a plastic container with a snap-tight lid. Reheat the muffins in the microwave just until barely warm .
