Always busy, on-the-go but wanting to create healthier meal options for yourself and your family? THIS power packed breakfast is the perfect recipe for easy quick prep, make ahead to take-n-go later. Packed with dense nutrition, vitamins, nutritients AND VEGGIES! Protein, good filling carbs and healthy fat to fill you up, keep you full and feel SO GOOD from the inside out. I can’t wait to hear your spin on this recipe!
- 8 eggs (5 whole, 3 whites.. or however you prefer)
- 1/2 c cottage cheese
- 1/4 c shredded cheese of choice
- 2 cups veggies of choice
- 1 c cooked quinoa
- 1.5 tsp onion powder
- 1.5 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1/8 tsp red pepper flakes
Preheat oven to 350, spray muffin tin generously with cooking spray. **I use a silicone muffin tray and it works a million times better! No sticking!!**
Beat eggs in large mixing bowl. Add cheeses and spices, stir to combine. Add quinoa, veggies (I usually do broccoli and spinach.. whatever I have in my fridge that needs used up really!) and mix.
Fill each muffin cup 3/4 full, top with a little shredded cheese (if you want). Bake 20 minutes. Broil for a couple minutes at the end for a crispier golden brown top (optional). Let cool for 10 minutes then serve.
Refrigerate for up to 5 days. These can also be frozen for later use!!
These are a great breakfast option for any meal program you’re following! They are a great combo of protein and FFC’s (fiber filled carbs)! What’s so great about this combo? It fills you up and satisfies you in the moment, but also keeps you fuller LONGER and gives you more stable energy that lasts, instead of a quick energy boost then crash (hangry anyone?) I mean.. how long has that donut REALLY satisfied you? Usually not longer than the few moments it’s in your mouth and loving on your tastebuds. Sorry not sorry. #truthbombs
