More often than not, when we think of muffins, we think of sweet muffins filled with fruit, seeds and nuts like the Gluten-Free Carrot Cake Muffin or the Gluten-Free One Bowl Chai Spiced Apple Walnut Muffins.

However, a savoury and cheesy muffin made with fresh tomatoes and green onions makes for a nice change.

Why are Grain-Free Vegetarian Pizza Muffins super flavourful

This grain-free savoury muffin is exceptional because of the cherry tomatoes. The tomatoes add freshness and keep the muffin light. Add melted cheese to the mix, and you know the pizza muffin will be outstanding!

For the seasoning, I used oregano, keeping the gluten-free muffin flavourful and simple. I also added green onions to make the pizza muffins extra tasty. 

Why use almond flour in this pizza muffin recipe?

To keep this gluten-free muffin recipe grain-free, I used healthy almond flour. The flour adds more protein and dietary fiber. And almond flour adds heartiness and keeps the muffins moist.

The cheesy pizza muffin is good for a grab-and-go breakfast, a leisurely brunch or a late afternoon snack. The savoury muffin is satisfying because it is packed with protein and fiber and will give you lasting energy. 

After a workout, a savoury high-protein muffin will hit the spot every time. So why grab a slice of pizza when you can have a grain-free pizza muffin without the extra carbs?
