Welcome to my most basic, yet most addicting and simple breakfast recipe: Healthy breakfast egg muffins. 😍

I wanted to share a recipe with you to only inspire you to eat healthier in the new year, but to also help you easily meal prep for breakfast. Also, I realized that many of my breakfast recipes are on the sweeter side, so this one is for all my savory lovers.

Look I get it, many of you are busy little bees. You work hard, you want to cook healthy and you want to nourish your body at the same time. But it’s difficult to plan ahead and the last thing you want to think about on a Sunday is cooking for the rest of the week.

The easiest solution is to pick recipes you are actually excited about!

I don’t know about you, but I love when I can make recipes out of what I already have in my fridge. Case in point: these breakfast egg muffins in portable cup form. They’re cheap, easy and customizable.

I used a carton of eggs, leftover veggies I had from the previous week, a splash of milk and that’s basically it. Bake them up and you have breakfast (or snacks) ready for the week ahead.

I like serving mine with avocado and hot sauce or salsa. Also for a complex carb I usually pair them with sprouted toast or half a baked sweet potato.
