Healthy Breakfast On The Go: Egg Muffins

Recently there was all this hype about McDonald's new Egg White McMuffins. I don't get it. "Egg White" does not equal healthy. I'm still standing by my post Why We Should NEVER Eat Fast Food. But, I'm happy to share a healthy alternative! If you love eggs in the morning but don't always have the time to make them, you're in luck! These egg muffins are packed with nutritious goodness, they're easy to make and best part is, they're a quick meal on the go! With a little planning, take a half hour to make these yummies and they'll feed you a healthy breakfast for the next several days. 


Ingredients:

  • One Dozen Cage Free Organic Eggs 
  • Coconut Oil
  • Salt & Pepper
  • A Hand Full of Your Favorite Veggies (some of mine include spinach, tomato, broccoli & onion)
  • Optional: Your Favorite Meat (I like chicken sausage or turkey bacon, deli meat works great too) 
  • Optional: Your Favorite Cheese 


Preparation:

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. In a bowl combine eggs, finely chopped veggies and meat with a dash of salt and pepper until eggs are scrambled.
  3. Grease a cupcake pan with coconut oil and if you're using cheese, sprinkle or place a small slice on the bottoms of the pans.
  4. Evenly pour mixture into cupcakes about 2/3 of the way.
  5. Bake for 18-20 minutes, remove from oven and cool for about 10 minutes
The muffins should be nice and fluffy when you take them out, but they will fall once they cool. You can eat them fresh out of the oven, or once cooled, place the muffins into a baggy and store in the fridge. When you're ready to eat, simply pop them in the microwave for about 30 seconds. Feel free to have fun with these, mix up your veggies for some variety and have a yummy, healthy, "fast-food" breakfast!
