Please share your favorite savory muffin recipe
I'm willing to buy whatever "flour/meal" I need to buy to make a nice savory breakfast muffin. What's your favorite?

Do you want an eggy one or a more traditional floury one?
In either case, sun dried tomato, mushrooms and parmesan cheese make a nice combo, so do artichoke, spinach and ricotta cheese
This is a good floury type base (imo ) : http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/lo...e-biscuit.html
2T (heaping) coconut flour. I do not know if it makes a difference, I used Bob's Red Mill High fiber from Netrition.
1 large egg (I used egglands best)
good pinch of salt
1/4tsp baking powder
2T water + I think I added about 1T more because the flour sucked it up.
In a microwave safe bowl about 3" diameter (pretty big!) :
Beat the egg and salt then add the water, mix and add the flour and baking powder until well blended and most of the lumps are gone. Let sit a few seconds and add more water if needed. You want it to look like a dough, not a batter.
Microwave for 1 minute 45 seconds until it looks dry and it's pulled away from the sides of the bowl.
Turn it out of the bowl and slice in half to make 2 equal thickness pieces and place on a rack to cool. You need air to circulate around them so they don't get soggy.
Use as you would a biscuit!
I was out of buttermilk but I would add 1T buttermilk and a pinch of baking soda to see how that turns out too
For the recipe it's approx: 130cals; 10g carbs; 6g fiber
