Savoury Breakfast Muffins

Posted by Lorna Macchia on

It is not unusual to find me in the kitchen at 11 am making brunch for hubby, who likes to practice restricted time period eating (eating within an 8 – 10 hr window during the day which has been shown to help improve metabolism, lower blood sugar; lessen inflammation and help clear out toxins and damaged cells, which lowers risk for cancer and enhances brain function). Whilst I’m happy with a bowl of seeds, coconut yoghurt, fruit & granola, he loves a spread of sautéed mushrooms, spinach, eggs, goats cheese, gluten free bread, avocado, sauerkraut, etc. He has been particularly busy lately so I wondered if I could use these ingredients to make a more convenient brunch dish that he could grab whenever he decided to eat. These savoury breakfast muffins are the result... and they appear to be pretty popular. I added some of our Immunity Elixir for a boost of medicinal mushrooms & adaptogens, and the result was a nutrient dense and tasty snack that is delicious warm from the oven or cool the next day. They also make a handy lunchbox inclusion for kids… or anyone really!
