When you have some crazy mornings waiting for you there's no better feeling than knowing you are ahead of the game. A good batch of delicious protein muffins can help you win those somewhat wild morning battles. Our muffins are tasty, healthy, easy to pack and can be made ahead of time.
For many of us, breakfast on-the-go is now a thing. I much rather sit down and enjoy my meal like the good old days but sometimes things don't really work that way. So it is important to have options to make sure that even if we don't have all the time in the world we are still getting properly fuelled during the day.
As much as I love my breakfast smoothies, there are times when I just crave something salty. Unfortunately, I've always felt there are very limited breakfast options when it comes to savoury food and I always end up eating the same thing.
That's why I'm so excited to share these protein muffins with you. These beauties are perfect for what we are after. You can pack them in a lunch box, eat them as a snack or you can even stuff your face with one while you are heading out the door first thing in the morning.
I wanted to make sure these muffins were enough to get me through the morning without having to snack here and there. So, I used a few different ingredients that would make them a super hearty, healthy and delicious breakfast option.
First of all, our protein muffins are made with silken tofu, chickpeas and nutritional yeast. These ingredients have a very subtle taste so I used black salt to get that egg-like flavour and it is incredible what it does. I've used it before to make other recipes such as this vegan scrambled eggs. You get a very eggy flavour by adding just a tiny bit of salt.
In order to make our protein muffins even more legit, I added tomatoes and mushrooms. Both veggies release water while you cook them. This will make your mix a bit more juicy which will add moisture to the muffins. I've had dry protein muffins before and believe me, they are not fun to eat.
I only sautéed the veggies for a few minutes, just long enough so they release a bit of water. I like having crunchy bits I can chew on. Also, the longer they sit in the pan the more water they release. We don't want to over do it.
This recipe will make 3 servings but you can always double the amounts and make a bigger batch. That's what I usually do so. I make quite a few protein muffins over the weekend and I store them in the fridge. This way I have breakfast sorted out for a couple of mornings so I don't have to stress about it later in the week.
Protein muffins will give you a great and easy head start when you know you are headed straight into "one of those" weeks!
