I’m so happy to be finally sharing this post with you!

Way back in February I actually started testing the recipes, but want to know a little secret?  Eggs + morning sickness = no no no NO.  So this post was on hold for several months until eggs were tolerable again.

Want to know another secret?  I have had a really hard time with egg muffins as a meal prep breakfast/snack for a long time, too. I love them fresh from the oven, but re-heated, I found them squishy and….juicy.  I wanted to love them so badly, but it was just a no for me.

But I decided to give them another try, this time adding a little bit of all purpose flour, and some baking powder so they weren’t dense.  And I finally found the perfect ratio to give me my perfect, fluffy, protein and veggie-packed snack, with no juicy/squishy issues upon re-heating.

Can you make these without the all-purpose flour?  Absolutely.  If you aren’t turned off by a bit of liquid when you reheat, then by all means, you can absolutely leave out the flour and baking powder.  They are lower carb and lower calorie without the flour.

A few important tips for making these egg muffins:

  • make sure you use silicone or parchment liners, as egg muffins are notorious for sticking to paper liners.  You may also have luck with spraying your pan, but sadly, I have not.
  • I find it easiest to mix my egg muffin batter up in a large glass measuring cup…that way you can scoop/pour using the spout and minimize drips
  • these are suuuuper freezer friendly! I would store in a glass storage container like this one for short term (1-2 week) storage and in a large plastic bag like these ones for longer term (up to 3 month) storage.

This base recipe is very flexible:

  • omit the flour & baking powder for a lower carb egg muffin
  • swap the all purpose flour for gluten free
  • add a cup of cooked quinoa for a boost of protein or try this recipe
  • these Cottage Cheese Egg Muffins from Closet Cooking are to die for, and another way to add protein to the muffins

These Kale, Mushroom and Feta Breakfast Burritos are one of my all-time favorite breakfast recipes, and I knew I wanted to recreate them in egg muffin form.  I thought goat cheese would be interesting to try in egg muffins, and it was!  The goat cheese flavor is present but subtle, but if you’d prefer, you can definitely swap for feta cheese.  Just remember to omit the salt if you add feta.

I’m really starting to come around to cauliflower rice…the perfect way to healthify any meal, including your egg muffins!  I just grated my cauliflower on a cheese grater, however you can often find it pre-riced, saving you some prep time.  The cauliflower and basil, oregano and dill go perfectly together in these muffins!

Back in the day, I used to work at a pretty awesome bakery/coffee shop, and they also happened to make the most amazing spinach, feta & red pepper quiche.  This is 100% inspired by that quiche…and if you like these flavors, you should also check out these Spinach, Feta & Egg Breakfast Quesadillas!  So so good.
