Quinoa Egg Muffins

Recipe for quinoa ham egg muffinsHaving quick, wholesome breakfast options that are readily available is one of the biggest challenges of real food eating.

Most traditional breakfast foods, like cereals and pastries, are quick to grab but then set us up for a full day of unhealthy eating. Not to mention the sugar crash that quickly ensues.

Egg muffins are one of my favorite ways to serve a quick, nutritious breakfast. I whip up a batch and keep in the fridge for a 3 day supply. It’s easy to eat on-the-run and provides delicious protein and veggies to get the day started right.

This recipe is extra hearty, due to the quinoa and ham. My son, Andrew, is 9 and on a MAJOR growth spurt! This is one breakfast that will satisfy him until lunchtime 🙂

    Question… will these pop right out of the muffin tin? I’m worried about them sticking, I plan to use a mini muffin pan.

      Hi Humairah,

      If you are not using a paper liner then you can grease the muffin tin with some coconut oil. Happy Cooking!
