The appeal of muffins is undeniable. A delicious treat that can be eaten with one hand on the go — what more could you want? Well, sometimes you want something a little more substantial than a traditional muffin. Maybe you're trying to eat fewer carbs in the morning, or cut back on sugar?
These savory egg and cheese muffins are just the ticket.
Made with eggs, unsweetened almond milk, coconut flour, chicken sausage, and cheddar, these muffins are packed with protein and just enough fat to keep you satisfied until your next meal.
One batch produces 12 muffins, so this is a great recipe if you need to make brunch for a crowd or you want to prep some easy grab-and-go options for the week ahead.
These muffins are also super versatile. If you don't eat dairy, leave out the cheese or sub your favorite vegan shredded cheese substitute. If you don't eat meat, the author suggests subbing in some sautéed veggies like bell pepper, broccoli, onion, spinach, or tomato. And they're not only good for lunch: Throw them on some mixed greens and top with avocado and salsa and you've got a fast and filling lunch to take to work!
