Cauliflower Muffins (Gluten Free)

These low carb, high protein, gluten free muffins are a twist on Mini Cauliflower Pizza Bites, but even tastier and easier! And good enough to serve for company.   Only 1 Weight Watchers PointsPlus for 2 muffins! I recently discovered Trader Joe’s 21 Seasoning Salute which is fantastic for jazzing up any veggies. It takes these muffins to a whole new level of yumminess!   Pre-Washed Cauliflower (Trader Joe’s or Costco) make this a snap!  My favorite Parmesan is Trader Joe’s Freshly Grated Parmesan, which gives them a great texture and fresh, cheesy taste.

Mini Cauliflower Pizza Bites

OMG these really are that good! The only problem with them is that I don’t know how you can stop at one… or two… or three… Okay, I confess, I’ve already eaten four… which means that they are no longer zero PointsPlus. But still delicious and definitely worthy! I didn’t use the mini pepperonis, and since I only had a large mini-muffin pan (24 muffins), I used a whole cauliflower and doubled the recipe accordingly. I’ll post it exactly the way I made it (yum!!), or you can go to Dashing Dish for Katie’s original version >> Orna’s Notes I love Trader Joe’s fresh Parmesan Cheese—not from a Green Can! Click here for Orna’s Trader Joe’s Shopping List >> Dashing Dish recommends using silicone liners or foil muffin liners with paper liners removed, but I didn’t have any and they turned out fine. She uses egg whites but I added the yolk for a bit of extra flavor. I figured that one egg yolk for 17 muffins won’t kill me! I froze the leftovers and they turned out great!
