With mid-week breakfasts being a rushed occurrence for many, it can often be hard to eat a healthy and nutritious meal. These breakfast muffins are the perfect solution to a busy morning. As well as being gluten free, this recipe contains a good amount of protein thanks to the almond meal and eggs. Protein is super important in the morning as it helps to stabilise blood sugar levels and keeps us fuller for longer. While the zucchini and sweet potato provide a range of vitamin and minerals, they also provide fibre and complex carbohydrates.
Great to pack for a breakfast on the go or for a snack in between meals, these Savoury Zucchini Breakfast Muffins make a great addition to your weekend food prep checklist. We love to eat these warmed with a little (read: a lot of) butter.
