  • 1 cup all purpose einkorn flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 3/4 tsp sea salt or to taste
  • 1 cup whole milk cottage cheese (organic if possible)
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 medium jalapeno , ribs and seeds removed, minced
  • 2 scallions , finely sliced


  • Preheat oven to 375° F.
  • In a large bowl, sift the flour, baking powder and sea salt together.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs and cottage cheese together. Add the jalapeños and scallions and whisk until combined. Pour the wet mixture into the bowl of dry ingredients, then gently fold the flour into the egg mixture with a stiff spatula until it's smooth.
  • Place 8 baking cups (or grease 8 muffin slots with butter) into the slots of a 12 cup muffin pan. Evenly portion the batter out into each cup. 
  • Place into your preheated oven and bake until the tops begin to turn golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the middle of a muffin comes out clean, about 22-25 minutes. 


*Do NOT substitute Einkorn whole grain flour for the all-purpose flour. The whole grain, which is ground from whole wheat berries, absorbs more liquid than the all-purpose. If you or your kids don't like jalapeños, then you could use some dried dill and fresh chives instead. Or just use the garlic powder and about 1/4 tsp of onion powder for a little onion flavor without any chopping. If making ahead, you can reheat in the microwave. I have a 1000 watt microwave and it takes about 40 seconds.
