Here is an easy, quick healthy breakfast recipe that is ideal for meal prep. Easy to prepare, and will definitely make a great choice for a good start to the day. Sometimes I don’t feel like making anything for breakfast, I just want to grab something and eat it. I wanted that something to be healthy so I made these breakfast muffins for breakfast. The day after you made them you can reheat them in the microwave or in a toaster, and they are almost like when they were fresh out of the oven.
I like to share breakfast ideas on my blog because breakfast is probably the most important meal of the day. As the name suggests breakfast “breaks the overnight fasting period. It replenishes your supply of glucose to boost your energy levels and alertness, while also providing other essential nutrients required for good health”, and for a good start to the day.
These savory breakfast muffins are a great source of fiber, protein, and fat. Loaded with veggies, nice and seasoned with herbes de Provence. They kinda taste like a veggie pizza.
If you are bored of your regular breakfast and looking for something new and exciting try these veggie breakfast muffins. They took only 15 minutes to prepare, lasted for days, and were very delicious.
Happy baking/cooking! Jó étvágyat!

Ingredients & Substitutions
Whole-wheat flour: Optional, I like it because it is an additional source of fiber. You can substitute it with oat flour or chickpea flour.
Veggies: Use any of your favorite vegetables. The more colorful the better.
Feta cheese: You can use any other type of cheese you like. Goat’s cheese, cheddar, next time I will try it with mini mozzarella cheese.
Tomato paste: Helps to keep the muffins moist and gives them a nice pizza flavor.
This amount makes about 6-8 muffins.
These breakfast muffins keep fresh in an air-tight container in the fridge for 3-4 days.
You can reheat them in the microwave, in the toaster oven, or pop them in an oven preheated to 160 degrees C (320 degrees F) on a tray covered with tinfoil and heat for 15 minutes, then uncovered for another 3-5.
If you make 8 muffins, 1 muffin provides about 205 calories, 7 grams of protein, 23 grams of carbohydrates, 10 grams of fat.
