Give your morning a lift with these delicious Garden Vegetable Breakfast Muffins. These are easy to prepare the night before and pop in the oven the next day. Or, make a double batch and freeze some to have a quick and prepared meal ready to go for the following weeks.
There are many reasons to love a good breakfast muffin. They don't take long to prepare and they have everything healthy you could want in one small package. It's not always easy though to load an egg muffin up with vegetables without getting a soggy bottom or deflated top.
I have made these muffins several times and made many changes to get them just right so you get a fluffy, flavorful muffin, without the soggy bottom!
Can I Use Different Vegetables?
I've made this recipe with replacing a vegetable with something different such as kale instead of mushrooms. Get creative, but stick with the portions I provide in the instructions.
I have used potatoes in this recipe. I would recommend shredding them like hash browns, soaking them in water, then making sure they're completely dried off so they don't add more moisture. Replace 1 vegetable with the potatoes and use ½ cup.
Is the Flour Really Needed?
Coating your vegetables in flour makes a huge difference. I done it without and I've gotten a slightly soggy bottom. I have used oat flour, white flour, and wheat flour and they all work great. If you don't have oat flour on hand, just blend up some rolled oats (that's how I make mine).
Do I Need to Use Muffin Liners?
I would strongly encourage you to use liners. I've tried to give it a go with only spraying with olive oil and it's just disappointing. They're super hard to get out and you lose a lot of your muffin to the tin. Don't waste your time and ingredients and just use liners!
