Healthy Meal Prep Breakfast Egg Muffins
Anyone else struggle with eating a healthy breakfast between getting yourself ready, trying to squeeze in an early workout or getting the kids dressed and fed, and then getting out the door on time? During the week, I leave for work before the kids wake up, but I still struggle!
I love having omelets for breakfast. For one, they’re a good source of protein and I can sneak in a ton of veggies first thing in the morning, but it takes way too long to cook with everything else I have to do. Then the worse part… cleaning the pan with eggs stuck to it!
Silicone Muffin Pan
I tried making egg muffins in an aluminum muffin pan in the past, but scrubbing the pan was a dealbreaker. Then I finally discovered silicone muffin pans. Once I bought this awesome, nothing-sticks-to-it silicone muffin pan, I knew it was destined for these easy morning healthy breakfast egg muffins.
Meal Prep Breakfast
Now, this is my go-to breakfast (or morning snack) during the week and on weekends. A little time on Sunday to prep makes mornings faster and easier all week long. I pop them in the microwave and in less than a minute I have a healthy and delicious, high-protein breakfast ready to go.
Fast, Easy AND Healthy
It’s just as quick as grabbing a bagel but a whole lot healthier. High-protein, low-carb, and a dose of veggies for fiber to fight off hunger for a few hours. The Denver omelet flavor is delicious alone, or add a side of salsa or avocado.
If you make it, please let me know what you think! Or if you try any variations you love, please let me know so I can try it next time. Snap a pic and tag me over on Instagram!

Kit! They make mornings so fast and healthy, and I still make them nearly every week (just pulled some out of the oven a few minutes ago!). I hope you give them a try and love them as much as I do!
