Protein packed Spinach Scramble Egg Muffins are a great way to get your greens in the AM!
Breakfast is always the trickiest meal of the day for our family. We love our sleep, and don’t want to waste a moment of our precious rest on a mediocre breakfast.
However the mommy in me wants everyone to get a healthy protein and vitamin packed meal to start the day off right.
That’s why I love these warm fluffy Spinach Scramble Egg Muffins. They are high in protein, with a heavy dose of greens. They are also naturally gluten-free and can be made with low fat cheese.
Yet best of all, you can make one batch of Spinach Scramble Egg Muffins at the beginning of the week, then rewarm them for quick and tasty breakfast all week long!
That’s right, Spinach Scramble Egg Muffins taste just as good on day two, three, four, and five…
Usually by then they are all gone!
When we are in a rush on school mornings, it’s a huge help to have a batch of Spinach Scramble Egg Muffins in the fridge. I just pop them in the microwave for a minute, then hand each child one or two warm muffins as they walk out the door.
Healthy breakfast, checked off. Two points for mommy!
If you are looking for ways to nix the sugary cereal as your family’s go-to quickie breakfast, give these a try.
