Veggie Egg Muffins

It’s about time I posted a new recipe! These egg muffins are so easy to make and super versatile. You can add any veggies you want, leave out the quinoa and cheese for strict Paleo, change up the cheese or add meat. Enzo has been waking up between 5-6 a.m. lately (please just be teething) and he expects food the minute he comes downstairs. It’s much easier on all of us if breakfast is ready fast but at 5 a.m. that can be a challenge. We were making him eggs pretty much everyday from scratch when I realized how silly that was. Why not batch cook a bunch of egg muffins and stuff them with veggies to get him an extra serving each day. He loves them and devours them in about 30 seconds. We usually give him fruit, all-natural sausage and/or gluten free toast with almond butter along with the muffins. It’s definitely been making our morning routine a little bit easier. Now if only those last 2 molars would hurry up, maybe we all could sleep in just a little bit!
