Mornings can definitely be a struggle, and sometimes the last thing you want to do is spend extra time preparing a meal. I’m all about saving time in the morning, but I still want to be able to have a healthy meal to fuel my day. Kyle and I love to make little snacks that are fairly healthy, easy to prepare and quick to eat. This is one of our go-to recipes for when we are in a rush.
Quick, Easy, and Healthy Egg Muffins
Bring on the egg muffins. These little egg-based muffins are one of my favourite snacks to eat for breakfast, or as a light snack throughout my day. They are fairly easy to make and don’t require very many ingredients. All you need is:
- a dozen large eggs
- salt and pepper
Normally I use a full small yellow onion, or a quarter of a large red onion if I want to add a different taste to them. Starting off you need to set your oven to 350 F, and then I crack the eggs into a mixing bowl. Once all the eggs are in a bowl I’ll whisk them in order to mix the yolks and the egg whites together. Next I’ll take about a handful and a half of spinach, and break it apart and throw it into the bowl. I then cut up a small portion of onion and toss that in. To give it a bit more flavour, I shred about a cup of cheese and throw it into the bowl. Lastly I sprinkle a bit of salt and pepper in it and mix all of the ingredients together. Once everything has been mixed up well, I grab a muffin tray, and spray the entire sheet. I then use a ¼ cup to scoop out the mix, and put it into the individual muffin area. I try to make sure that the mix is spread evenly throughout the muffin cups. Once the oven is ready, I put the muffin sheet in for 20-22 minutes. After the time is up, it’s important to make sure that they are cooked all the way through, so normally I stick a fork in them and if it comes out wet, I know I have to leave it in the oven for a few more minutes. Once they seem cooked, let sit for 10 minutes, and then serve with whatever you want on the side. Normally I will have mine with fresh fruit.
If you are looking to be a bit healthier, you can take away the cheese and add peppers instead, or even take out some of the yolks if you want to keep the fat content down. If you are looking to make it into more of a cheat snack, you can add cut up sausage or bacon to add a bit more flavour and heartiness to it.
I hope you enjoy, it’s definitely the perfect thing to grab and go for those mornings when you’re in a rush!
