I grew up in a household where breakfast meant savoury. No cereal boxes, no bowls of sugary frosty letters. Just good old fashioned home cooked breakfast. These days, I’ve got my hands full with a full-time job and two kids in tow, and a cooked breakfast is a luxury I can’t afford on most days. Enter the baked egg and spinach muffins. These little gems tick all my breakfast boxes; they are wholesome and packed with proteins and healthy fats which keeps me full till lunch time and comes with the convenience of a breakfast I can chow on while commuting or doing the school runs.

Plus there’s the added incentive that because they are low in carbs, I don’t have to worry about a mid-morning sugar-rush induced hunger pangs and cravings.

Don’t just take my word for it – try them!

Instructions
  1. Heat the olive oil and sauté the tomato, bell pepper and onions for 1 - 2 minutes. Add the crushed garlic, red chilli flakes, spinach, salt and pepper and continue to sauté until the spinach is wilted.
  2. Meanwhile in a separate bowl, break the eggs and whisk lightly, and set aside. Preheat your oven to 200 degrees (180 degrees if fan-assisted).
  3. Distribute your muffin holders into a muffin pan (include this step to decrease dramatically your washing up time!).
  4. Scoop the sautéed vegetables into each muffin holder, and then top by pouring the egg mixture into the compartment. Bake for 15 - 18 minutes
