Cauliflower is such a versatile little vegetable. This recipe uses nutritional yeast to give a cheesy flavor to the muffins, but if you don't have any you can omit it. Or you can use real cheese if you tolerate dairy! This makes a lot of muffins and lasted well in the fridge for 3-4 days after making it. Use it as a delicious, portable side dish.
1) 2 pounds of cauliflower florets ( I used the bag from Costco)
2) 4 eggs
3) 1/4 cup coconut flour
4) 1/2 cup nutritional yeast (optional, but gives the "cheesy" flavor)
5) 1/4 - 1/2 cup bacon bits (depends on how much you want in each muffin, start with 1/4 cup and add more if it looks like too little!)
Extra: 1 teaspoon salt
**Makes 18 muffins**
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
1) Steam your cauliflower. You can do this on the stove, or the lazy way like I did: microwave. I placed the cauliflower in a very large bowl, added 1/4 cup water, and cooked for 8-10 minutes until fork tender.
