You can pop a homemade breakfast into the microwave and eat it with one hand as you make your way out of the door. Whether you’re on the go or just too lazy to whip something up, these muffins are sure to make your morning that much easier. 

Why You’ll Love This Recipe

  • With roughly 6 grams of protein and only 5 grams of carbs, you’ll be receiving the energy you need to start the morning off right.
  • These can also be made dairy-free using a splash of Almond Breeze almond milk makes this egg muffin recipe even healthier.
  • Prep a dozen of these bites and you’ll have breakfast for a week

Ingredients in Egg Muffins

  • Eggs – I always buy large eggs
  • Almond Milk – original unsweetened – or you can use nonfat milk or any other milk or nondairy milk.
  • Flour – I use all-purpose but gluten-free flour can be substituted
  • Baking soda – Helps the eggs be nice and fluffy
  • Spices – Salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, Smoked Paprika, Onion Powder
  • Green pepper – diced – and you can also use any color bell pepper and even add diced onions if you want.
  • Bacon – I love turkey bacon but you can use any kind you like.

How to Make Egg Muffins

  • Preheat oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F and prepare a twelve-cup muffin pan by greasing it with nonstick cooking spray. 
  • Create egg mixture: In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together eggs and Almond Breeze almond milk until smooth. Then mix in flour, baking soda, spices, and salt. 
  • Combine ingredients: Add green pepper and chopped bacon into your egg mixture, combining evenly. 
  • Bake: In your prepared muffin tray, pour the egg mixture into each cup equally. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes. Once done, allow the egg muffins to cool for five minutes before removal.

Recipe Swap

  • Use sausage or make these vegetarian egg cups by omitting the bacon alltogether.
  • Add onions or other vegetables, like mushrooms, asparagus, or broccoli.

Tips

  • You’ll want to check on your egg muffins frequently the first time you make them so that you know how long to cook them. If you prefer firm eggs, you’ll likely want to bake them for the full 15 minutes. If you like runnier eggs, check on them at the 11-minute mark to see if they’re to your liking. 

FAQs

Can I make egg muffins ahead of time?

Yes, egg muffins can be made ahead of time and frozen or refrigerated.

Can I freeze egg muffins?

Yes! These make for the perfect grab-and-go breakfast because they can be frozen in sandwich bags.

How do you reheat egg muffins?

Reheat your egg muffins in the microwave on a microwave-safe plate. If you’re reheating the egg muffins from frozen, heat them for 2 minutes. If the egg muffins are thawed, heat them up for 1 minute.

Why do egg muffins stick to the pan?

If your egg muffins are sticking to the pan, you may have forgotten to use cooking oil to grease the cups of the pan. 

How can I keep egg muffins fluffy?

Egg muffins sometimes deflate because they were not beaten well enough or have cooled down and lost their structure. To keep your egg muffins from deflating, add a bit of flour and baking soda to your mixture. 

Why are my egg muffins soggy?

Adding wet ingredients like tomatoes or onions can create too much moisture in the egg and make them soggy. Cooking the add-ins first is a good way to prevent unwanted moisture.
