Breakfast Muffins

The one meal that I will always look forward to no matter what is breakfast. There is never a morning where I go without it, yet there are many people who find it difficult to get in a nutritious breakfast.

As the most important meal of the day, we all need a to eat in the morning, to set us up for the rest of the day. It provides us with there energy we desperately after a good nights sleep, breaking the fast!

So to help those of you who struggle to have enough time to make breakfast, I have created a breakfast muffin recipe. They are high in protein and healthy fats to fuel you up for the start of your busy day and boost your metabolism up!


Makes 12 muffins


  • 9 eggs
  • 6 bacon medallions*
  • 1/2 red bell pepper
  • 4 mushrooms
  • 20g feta cheese
  • A handful of spinach
  • 1 tsp garlic
  • Black pepper (to taste)
  • Pinch of salt


  • Pre-heat the oven to Gas Mark 4 177C
  • Grill bacon medallions on a medium/high heat until cooked on both sides for around 10-15 minutes
  • Whilst waiting for the bacon, whisk together all of your eggs in a large bowl
  • Chop up mushrooms, feta and spinach ready to be added to other ingredients
  • Once bacon is cooked, allow to cool a little before chopping up into small pieces and placing in the egg mixture
  • Now add in all remaining ingredients, combining together gently
  • Prepare a muffin tray with melted coconut oil, coating all of the sides
  • Evenly pour mixture into muffin molds then cook in the oven for 15-20 minutes, until they are a soft spongy texture and golden on top.
  • Serve straight away, refrigerate for 2 days, or freeze them for a month!



*I have tried these with chorizo sausage and paprika for a different spicy twist! Feel free to swap for your favourite meaty filling and let me know what you think.
