Recipe Notes

Leftovers should be kept in the fridge for up to a week. See post for freezing instructions.

Feel free to bake in individual muffins tins for an easy portable breakfast. Use muffin liners.

To make vegan: Use a flax or chia egg instead of a regular egg. Make sure to use maple syrup instead of honey.
