Original 11/26/11 - I tried making a half batch of this today and was quite impressed. It's a great base recipe to tweak to individual tastes. I added some cayenne and skipped the salt (sodium-restricted diet). Next time I would add more garlic powder, some dried herbs and some old bay seasoning. I would also melt the butter and increase the quantity slightly. Might try replacing the egg with a tiny amount of broth or water or cream. 10 stars for ease and speed of prep. It literally takes a minute to put together and about 12 min to bake.Thanks a lot for posting the recipe! Update - I now make this regularly and have made some changes based on trial and error. I use half blanched almond flour and half whole almond meal. This reduces the net carbs for the entire recipe by 4g. I add whatever spices/herbs that catch my fancy and cheddar monterey jack cheese mix. Instead of egg, I add enough chicken broth to moisten and mix the dough with my fingers until it comes together in a ball. I make 8 balls (approx 2.28g carb each) from each batch, flatten between my palms and bake as directed. It holds together very well and tastes great.

These muffins are delicious! I steamed and chopped broccoli and added that in addition to sauteing 1/4 cup garlic and onions. Love these!!

Oh I just love these what a brilliant recipe so crispy and cheesy I made them to the recipe with no changes. I think the only thing I would do differently is maybe make them into thinner little cookies. I think that would work as well but your suggestion to use them as little garlic cheese breads is a great idea, just fab. Thank you for posting Made for honor thy mother the diabetic forum May 2011

Yum!!! Fresh out the oven and I ate 3 in quick succession! I used almond meal because that's all it had on hand and garlic salt in place of the garlic and salt but the were awesome. So tasty and cheesy, super low carb, very quick to make, I'll be making these again and again. Thank you!!

My husband and I really liked these. Ours seemed to be thinner than the ones in the photo, but we liked them this way. We were able to toast them a bit and then put a little pizza sauce on them, pepperoni and cheese. What great little personal pizzas these make. This recipe is a keeper!
