Adapted from a recipe I found on one of the South Beach diet sites. These muffins are really good and a real treat for no carbers. I like to put a little tomato paste and skim mozzarella on one for a mini pizza. Enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 325F and spray muffin pans with cooking spray (Pam).
  2. Separate the egg whites and yolks.
  3. Beat the egg whites until stiff.
  4. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the egg yolks, cottage cheese, soy flour and sugar substitute
  5. Mix well.
  6. Add the mixture to the beaten egg whites and fold gently.
  7. Fill prepared muffin cups 2/3 full with batter.
  8. Bake the muffins until they are golden-brown and spring back when touched with the back of a fork (approximately 25-30 min).

Sorry, but I thought these were terrible. I tried making these 3 times, and they came out to be flat, limp, soggy, eggy frisbies. I don't know if I did something wrong all 3 times, but I would not recommend these. I'd rather eat paper...

I gave this recipe 3 stars only because the recipe has potential. Normally when I think of a muffin I think of a bread like substance....I should have gone with my get feeling about the ingredients that these weren't "muffins" these are egg mock muffins. I think you should change the title so others are informed of what this recipe really is. That said, I think the potential part is this: add bacon or sausage, mushrooms or whatever you like and make them into little breakfast omlette-like-muffins. Quick and easy in the morning. My husband ate 2 and I ate one and threw the rest away...sorry.

Love this recipe. Has made it many times since I've been on the South Beach Diet. Thank you, Miraklegirl, for sharing.
