We know we should have breakfast every morning, but on the days when we are already crawling (every day) we tend to put it off.
What we really need is a breakfast that can rush out of the door with us, and these bite-size meals, which are prepared in a muffin tin, fit the bill. Simple, healthy and fully portable, they make your morning easier – and tastier.
1. Mini ham and cheese quinoa cups
Don't be fooled by their size: with eggs, vegetables, cheese, quinoa and ham in every serving, these cups offer an impressive punch. You will not feel that something is missing.
They are like a smaller, healthier quiche. We like it.
2. Hash Brown Egg Nests with Avocado
Frozen Rösti bake in these individual mini-meals to perfect "nests" for eggs, vegetables and cheese. The only thing that could make it better? Bacon and avocado, of course.
Pro tip : Cool your avocado slices beforehand. This way, when you heat it up for snacking, you get this fantastic combination of hot and cold. Better pack some of these bad guys, you'll need them.
3. Vegetable egg and toast cups
With the hectic bustle of the morning hours when I hate everything, you just have to stick to the basics where you can. This breakfast recipe is like that, but better.
Good old wholemeal bread forms the "cups" here, which are then filled with vegetables and eggs. This is a reliable way to enjoy a classic breakfast. It is also suitable for all of our vegetarian friends out there.
4. Egg muffins with maple sweet potato noodles, bacon and almond butter
Okay, under the title of this recipe we know that you probably know what the effect in this recipe is? [1
5. Paleo Egg Cups
Even if you don't follow a Paleo lifestyle, you will likely like these low-carb, five-ingredient cups (because of bacon).
As they are pressed into muffin cups, the meat becomes crispy to keep the eggs and asparagus in every protein-rich portion. The smell alone will surely satisfy even the most picky eaters.
6. Frozen yogurt muesli berry bites
These cool and crispy delicacies could serve as a dessert or snack recipe.
But since they're full of muesli, yogurt, and berries, we think they're & # 39; We wrote breakfast everywhere – especially if you swap muesli bought in the shop for homemade and normal yogurt for Greek.
7. Mini French Toast Casserole Beakers
French toast for which you don't need a fork or knife? Pretty much a dream comes true. The recipe is Ezekiel Bread, but use any gluten-free toast you like, as long as it contains all of the egg filling.
To get that real Sunday brunch feeling, fill these cups with your favorite fruits, maple syrup and cinnamon, and then wash them off with fresh OJ.
8. Apple Banana Quinoa Breakfast Cups
For our creative chefs out there, this is one of those wonderful recipes that can serve as a guide rather than a specific guide.
It's perfect for customizing your favorite fruits, spices, and other fun add-ins. But if that's not your thing, the original is damn good as it is. You really can't go wrong with apple and banana.
9. Baked Oatmeal Cups 4-Way
Baked oatmeal cups are pretty much an adult skill for life. These vegan, gluten-free delights are simple, nutritious, and portable, and ensure you never get bored.
Good old, reliable oats go well with apples and cinnamon, chocolate, blueberries and almonds or peanut butter and banana. I have a mug for every mood you feel.
Pro-Tip : Store a large amount in the freezer, where it can be kept for up to 3 months. My pleasure.
10. Paleo blueberry muffins with crumb topped
We cannot talk about muffin-tin breakfast without mentioning the best type of muffin in the universe: blueberry.
Only this time we keep it paleo, grain-free, milk-free and gluten-free. Is it still a muffin at all, although ? We are pleased that you asked – yes, and a delicious one at that. Put on your apron for that. It's a bit of work, but it's definitely worth it.
11. Oatmeal mug with bananas and chocolate chips
Baked oatmeal flour is a wonderful thing, but we usually only see it in the baking dish. This recipe transfers it to muffin tins and we are obsessed with Kiiiinda.
Each muffin is covered with chocolate chips to make breakfast feel a little more special, but the banana base keeps it healthy (ish). It's like meeting banana bread with a breakfast biscuit and a bowl of oatmeal. In a word, yum.
12. Coconut Almond Paleo Breakfast Muffins
Sometimes the best things in life are free … from unnecessary, processed, overly sweet ingredients, that is. You probably have everything you need for this recipe, especially in your pantry and fridge.
Bananas and vanilla provide just the right amount of sweetness, nuts and grated coconut add texture, and eggs make it a healthy breakfast with two thumbs up. Oh, and don't forget the (paleo) chocolate chips.
13. Make-Ahead Frozen Oatmeal
Eat your heart for anyone who loves Trail Mix. This is basically the muffin version. Nuts and dried fruits, cocoa nibs, chopped dates, whatever you want, it's always an option.
These are frozen instead of baked, so the choice is yours: put them in the microwave to get a really quick bowl of oatmeal, or eat them frozen for a refreshing meal on the go.
14. Paleo Double Chocolate Pumpkin Muffins
Nowadays, you don't need white flour or a shipload of refined sugar to make all the muffins muffins . A little almond butter and coconut sugar paired with a few eggs do the job – and do it well.
Regarding creative breakfast flavor combinations, we think that takes the cake (uh, muffin). Pumpkin and double chocolate may be the best since peanut butter and jelly. Let yourself be surprised (and full).
On a busy morning, when you have about a minute to get out the door, a delicious breakfast can easily be at the bottom of your priority list. If you grab anything at all, the AF is boring. (Uh, not another cereal bar. * Groans *)
Darling, your muffin tin just became your new breakfast beast. In 30 minutes or less you have all the flavors you are looking for in a portable, pretty, small package. We finally have breakfast in our pocket – literally.
