Breakfast egg muffins on Slimming World
If you follow Slimming World and get bored of using your healthy extra b choices for breakfast then why not try something a little bit different.
The breakfast muffins are almost syn free if using one healthy extra a choice. If you choose to have milk as your second healthy a choice then you could make these syn free by using milk from the allowance.
The milk in the recipe is around 1 syn and the cheese could be 1 healthy extra a choice or 6 syns approx.
The vegetables in these muffins make them low in calories and nice and filling for you. Delicious hot and cold they are great for a breakfast on the go and can of course be made the night before if this makes it easier.
Adapting the muffins
If you want to change this recipe up a bit you can swap around the vegetables to add different flavours.
I would always recommend however avoiding watery vegetables like mushrooms and tomatoes as they tend to prevent the muffins from setting as well.
To add a bit of a kick you could also add a pinch of chilli powder or some chilli flakes!
Using these breakfast muffins in meal plans
These breakfast muffins are perfect for most weight loss plans either as a breakfast or a snack. As they are so cheap to make I include them in my budget family meal plan.
