INGREDIENTS

1 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
8 oz. package spinach, sautéed
3 green onions, chopped and sautéed
1 jalapeno, chopped
1 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 tsp baking soda
4 Tbsp almond flour
1/4 tsp turmeric
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 cup feta cheese
1/2 cup mix of Italian cheese (romano, parmesan, mozzarella)
4 eggs, beaten
1 Tbsp ghee

Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 430°F.

2. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat and sauté spinach, green onions, and jalapeño for three minutes.

3. In a large mixing bowl, mix the yogurt with baking soda.

4. Measure out the rest of the ingredients and add to the bowl with yogurt and baking soda. Stir well but don’t over mix. It is important the batter stays a little clunky and the muffins will turn out fluffier.

5. Combine the batter evenly between nine greased muffin cups.

6. Bake at 430°F for 20 to 22 minutes, timing will differ with each oven. Serve with sliced tomatoes.
