These healthy egg muffins are a perfect lunch-to-go idea.
Have you got an hour? A handful of vegetables, some eggs?
Let’s whip up this easy clean eating lunch idea!
Not only master chefs know that “you eat with your eyes first”.
Don’t these vegetable muffins look just gorgeous? …And my husband keeps telling me that they also taste delicious. I won’t disagree;)
Store the healthy egg muffins in your freezer and each morning take one or two straight from freezer to lunchbox or school snack box.
Of course they are yummy and practical as breakfast option too:)
I’m convinced that once you have baked 6 egg muffins as a test, you will crave for more the next time. Just double ingredients for 12 vegetable muffins. As clean eating muffins they don’t need any “white flour” but use instead almond meal. Check out the healthy egg muffins recipe below!
