INGREDIENTS

1 Tbsp Grape seed oil
1/4 Cup Leeks, Finely Chopped
2 Cups Spinach, Fresh
1 Garlic clove, Minced
6 Eggs
3/4 Cup Cheddar, reduced-fat, shredded (optional)
1 Tbsp almond milk
Pepper, to taste
Sea salt, to taste

DIRECTIONS

Start your low-carb egg muffins by cooking garlic, leeks, and spinach in grape seed oil, setting it aside for use later.

step #1

Start by preheating your oven to 350°F. In a large pan, heat grape seed oil over medium and cook leeks for about 2 minutes, then add spinach and cook until wilted. Add garlic and cook for an additional 30 seconds and season with salt and pepper. Remove from heat.
Whisk together eggs, cheese, almond milk, and seasoning before incorporating your spinach and leeks.

step #2

In a small bowl, whisk eggs, cheese, and almond milk together then season with salt and pepper. Add leek and spinach to mixture and combine ingredients.
Spray down a muffin tray with a non-stick cooking spray before filling with your mixture until each cavity is ¾ full. If you don’t have enough mixture for each cavity, fill empties ¼ of the way with water. Bake in your oven for 20 minutes, or until golden brown around the edges. Store leftover muffins in the fridge in an airtight container.

step #3

Coat a muffin tray with cooking spray then add egg filling. Make sure they’re ¾ full. Bake for 20 minutes or until muffins turn golden brown along the edges. Keep in a container and store leftovers in refrigerator.

Did you know?

Eggs are a popular protein option because of just how much they provide in such a small package. Did you know that one large egg contains 6.3 grams of protein? That’s almost a quarter of the protein found in a steak!

Egg whites are also a great source of vitamin B2 and D. In fact, eggs are considered a “complete” protein food because eggs provide all 8 essential amino acids that we can only get from our diet.

Not bad for such a small package, and small wonder that eggs are the go-to breakfast food for so many around the world!
