These delicious bacon and cheese muffins may look carby, but don’t let that fool you. They are only 2.2 net carbs per muffin. Plus, they are so easy to make!
For this recipe, you will need cauliflower rice. Some stores do sell the cauliflower pre-chopped, but if you can’t find it, stick the vegetable into a blender and food processor. Pulse until the cauliflower is the size of a grain of rice. It’s fairly straightforward – the only annoyance is cleaning out the blender afterwards!
The trick to getting these to hold together is when you are filling the muffin tin with the mixture, make sure to push the mix down as much as you can (like you are pushing garbage down in a garbage can). You’ll also be able to add more if it’s pressed down!
