Savory Cottage Cheese Breakfast Muffins

I will forever be a muffin lover for breakfast, especially the days I'm running out the door or need pre-workout fuel. They also bonus as a delicious afternoon snack or wholesome sweet treat, especially when it's one of my healthy gingerbread muffins.

Ingredients:

–Turkey sausages -- Eggs -- Milk -- Cottage Cheese -- Olive Oil -- Maple Syrup -- Baking Powder -- All-purpose Flour -- Chopped Vegetables -- Cheddar Cheese

Are these muffins a balanced meal?

These muffins do contain protein, carbohydrates and vegetables. However, for an even more satisfying and filling meal I recommend pairing with some yogurt for extra protein and fruit for fibre-rich carbohydrates.

Storage

These muffins can be stored in the fridge for up to 5 days in an airtight container. For longer storage, they can be wrapped individually using plastic wrap or tin foil and stored in the freezer for up to 3 months. To reheat, you can microwave them for about 1 minute or air fry at 325F for about 5-7 minutes!

Top Tip

HIGHLY recommend using either silicone muffins liners or a silicone muffin tray. This batter is quite sticky and using regular muffin liners or just greasing the muffin tin will make it quite difficult to remove the muffins in one piece. If you are in a pinch, slicing squares of parchment paper and using them as muffin liners will work as well, although I find this method quite messy.

Does the cottage cheese add a strange texture?

Nope! The curds actually melt, so it's not noticeable at all.

Is white flour healthy?

As an ‘all foods fit’ dietitian, I strongly believe everything can fit into a balanced diet, and that includes white flours! Although white flour may not have as much fiber as oat flour or whole wheat flour, it still does contain 4 g of fiber per 3 tbsp.
