Grain-free but fiber-full, these egg muffins can also be made dairy-free by using a plain almond or coconut yogurt. Text PROTEIN123 to 44222 for the Better Protein Nutrition Guide. Make these ahead to have on hand for a quick morning or midday bite.
Makes: 12 muffins
3 organic pasture eggs
2 cups organic liquid egg whites
1/4 cup cooked lentils, pureed
3 Tablespoons organic lowfat Greek yogurt
1 teaspoon organic vanilla extract
1 teaspoon organic cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon organic cinnamon (reserve for sprinkle) high-heat coconut oil spray for pan
Preheat oven 350F. Grease muffin tin (12 large muffins) with coconut oil or spray, and set aside.
In a bowl, whisk whole eggs, egg whites, lentils, yogurt, vanilla, nutmeg and cinnamon (1 tsp) until smooth. Divide mixture equally between muffins in tin. Sprinkle remaining cinnamon (1/2 tsp) evenly across the tops of the filled muffins.
Bake for 20-22 minutes; cooking time varies greatly depending on oven so start looking at them after 18 minutes. You can test with a toothpick (nothing should stick to finished muffins). Muffins will be very puffy initially, will drop as much as 1/2 their size upon cooling.
Eat when cooled or store in a container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
