Cottage Cheese, Eggs, Almonds Savory Bread

Follow Me on Pinterest


2 cups full fat cottage cheese
3 cups Almond flour (I just ground up almonds in the Vitamix)
8 eggs
1 bunch chopped spring onions
chillie powder (cayenne pepper) per taste
2 Tbsps Dry Basil leaves
Ground, dry rosemary -- I add a lot, because I love the aroma.
Baking soda
Baking powder
Salt to taste


1. Whisk the eggs and mix with the cottage cheese and almond flour.
2. Add the chopped spring onions, basil and grind up some dried rosemary leaves in a pestle and mortar and toss that in.
3. Add chilli (cayenne) powder and salt and taste test to see if it feels good.
4. Preheat Oven to 375 F
5. Line a square (8"x8") baking dish and grease it a bit with your choice of oil. Pour the dough in and bake for 40 minutes or until done.

Macro Nutrients:
Protein: 48 +56 + 60 gms = 164 gms
Fat: 32 + 20+ 141 = 193gms
Carbs: 16 + 21*3 = 79 gms

Hmm. I am not liking the protein to fat ratio and the main culprit is the almonds. So next time, I will be going a little easy on the almonds. May be half the amount. I would also sprinkle some rock salt and rosemary on top of the bread.
