I didn't measure the cheese very accurately... just whacked a chunk off the big block and grated it in the food processor. So I may have made mine extra cheesy.

Next time, I will just grease the tins and not use the muffin papers. They are kind of a pain to peel off of these. Kind of remind me of a cheesy bacon biscuit I've had, but better.
Wasn't sure if I should fill the tins or leave room to rise, will fill them completely next time.
Definitely making these again.

Can these be frozen if not all consumed, what is the best way to reheat?

This looks like an awesome muffin for a breakfast dish. Definitely going to try it

Marie, i would think it would be okay to freeze them, just try it out, and toast it in the toaster or oven for a few minutes. The microwave denatures food and coconut ingredients are pretty expensive to waist! Hope this helps. But i personally would keep the left overs in the fridge until consumed and toast them to reheat. I tried freezing some with regular flour and they didn't turn out so well for me to reheat. :)

These were awesome! My only complaint was that they stuck to the liners, so next time I'll try greasing my muffin tins and putting the batter in directly. Thanks so much for sharing!

I cannot wait to try these!!! But I think I might add cream cheese as well :)

These are really, really good. My daughter said they taste like a Bojangles biscuit but without the rock in your stomach after you eat it. So true! I used turkey bacon in the first batch and mushrooms and expensive cheese in the second batch. Both are too good to be true. Thank you, thank you!

I just made this muffins for breakfast and they were very good. Definitely will make them again :) the only problem I had was I used the coconut oil to grease the pan but I guess I didn't use enough so a lot stuck to the pan. Oh well, now I know for next time.

Great Recipe, We used thick sliced bacon which was a bit salty so thinking to use thinner bacon next time. Wife loved it.

I liked them although mine were very dry. Not sure what to add next time to moisten them more, any ideas? Definitely won't use papers. I thought I'd just put it in an 8" pan and cut as needed .

These are absolutely amazing! So delicious, thank you for posting this recipe, I totally love them. I added a handful of chopped flat leaf italian parsley, and will try chives next time. Worked really well.

I read all the comments before hand and put rice bran oil in my muffin tray, but they still stuck a bit, I'm gathering it's because of the cheese. Nonetheless a quick and divine treat.
