I have been slacking in the breakfast department lately. It’s a known fact that a protein-packed breakfast in the mornings can not only be more filling but can help kids (and moms) focus better throughout the day. I put together 12 of my favorite recipes to help keep me on track on busy mornings so my kids stay healthier and happier throughout the day. I’m so excited to share this series with you, starting with my healthy egg muffin recipe.
This is part one of 12 of my protein-packed breakfast recipes (stay tuned for each post!):
- Healthy Egg Muffins
- Peanut Butter Banana Rice Cakes
- Bacon and Egg Avocado Bake
- Protein Blueberry Muffins
- Berry Smoothie Bowl
- Sausage and Egg Sandwich
- Chocolate Banana Protein Smoothie
- Yogurt Parfaits
- Protein French Toast Roll-Ups
- Breakfast Burritos
- Green Protein Smoothie
- Protein Pancakes
Mornings can be such a struggle, am I right? Getting five kids out of bed and my big kids fed before school can be a challenge if I don’t have my act together. Studies have shown that a protein-filled breakfast can help kids focus longer, and do better at school. I’ve got two pretty busy boys, one of which definitely has symptoms of ADD. My goal is to get him some type of protein, but like I said I’ve been slacking so I’m really excited about having 12 recipes that are simple but still healthy, protein-based, and kid approved as well.
I LOVE this egg muffin recipe. The eggs and milk give it a soft, creamy texture, and the vegetables provide the perfect savory taste. I love the combination of spinach, tomatoes, and cheese. I could eat this combo in really anything, an omelet, a burrito, a quesadilla, it’s so good! You don’t have to cook the spinach beforehand, just throw it in the muffin tin along with the other ingredients, top with the egg mixture, and throw in the oven.
With this recipe, you can exchange the veggies I’ve used for any vegetable or breakfast meat. You could do bacon, egg, and cheese, or a sausage, egg, and cheese muffin. You could also add mushrooms, or fresh peppers, or squash and zucchini would also be very good! I love how versatile this option is!
The other great thing about this egg muffin recipe? You can bake beforehand and wrap in individual servings and you have breakfast already done! This is a definite time saver for the busy mornings. But this could easily be a yummy lunch or dinner as well. Who else loves breakfast for dinner? It’s really one of my favorite things, and my go to when I don’t have a plan for dinner!
This egg muffin recipe is yummy. It’s easy. It’s pretty (if you ask me!). It can be done beforehand, or it can bake while you’re getting ready for the day. What’s not to love? Let’s get to that recipe!
I’ll be continually posting the remaining recipes over the next two weeks, so stay tuned for more. I sincerely hope this egg muffin recipe and my 12-recipe plan will save you some time and help you keep on track too! Pin this now so you’ll have it for later!
