Getting ample amount of protein in for breakfast can be a bit of a struggle for a lot of people, in fact it is probably one of my most frequently asked questions ‘But what can I have other than cereal or toast?’ For me breakfast is just another meal in the day, nothing special, in fact it isn’t even the end of the world if you don’t have any (but that is a whole other matter!).
So what can you have if you are short on time but want to eat something which is full of protein and goodness? My easy peasy breakfast muffins that’s what! They are also super low calorie at under 50 calories per muffin!
These are super quick to whip up and will save for a few days in tupperware in the fridge. I like to make them on a Sunday afternoon to last me a couple of days at the beginning of busy weeks.
You can heat them up in the microwave or eat them cold! Have them for breakfast, mid morning snack or post workout. You can flavour them and fill them with whatever you like. The options are endless!
