These savory low-carb breakfast egg muffins are a time saver. Seriously when you need something quick to run out the door, these eggs muffins are just perfect.
They are delicious, convenient, easy to make and crazy filling. They’ll keep you full all morning till lunch.
If you’ve been opting in on drive-through breakfasts, you’ve been missing out.
Even though I love my Mcdonald’s Sausage, Egg and Cheese McMuffin, eating it every day can be borning.
Not to mention, it’ll start to affect your waistline and reflect on your weight scale.
So this is where these protein-packed keto egg muffins come in. They are here to shake up your breakfast routine and power up your morning once again.
I first fell in love with the idea of egg muffins when I had Sous Vide Egg Bites: Bacon & Gruyere at Starbucks.
It’s filling, savory, and best of all, it’s low in carbs. Yes, it’s perfect for your keto diet menu.
While I still love little treats I get at Starbucks, I found it’s super easy to make similar savory egg bites at home.
I can hardly call this cooking, and if you are a fan of meal prep or make-ahead cooking plans, this is perfect for you.
One batch makes 8 cups, but if you want to make enough to last you for a week, I suggest you double the batch.
As a mom in charge of my family’s nutrient intake, these little egg muffins are also a lifesaver.
Just taking a look at the egg nutrition facts, you can see why.
One large egg has 72 calories, 4.8g of total fat, 0.4g of total carbs, and 6g of protein.
By itself, it may lack the fat you need to fill your macro ratio, but it provides good protein for the morning.
Plus, you’ll be blending in heavy cream and savory cheese to add fat and richness to the muffins.
I also want to share that you can customize this recipe fairly easily. Instead of bell peppers, I have used spinach and came out perfect.
Also, you can use full-fat cheese you have in your fridge. It can be mozzarella, cheddar, gruyere, etc.. If you need more keto-friendly cheese options here’s a full list for you here.
I also find that silicone muffin pans work better than metal ones. If you are using metal pans, be sure to grease the bottom.
