Hearty Protein Breakfast Muffins


Here at PrimeWomen, we’re always on the lookout for a quick breakfast that is high in nutrition. These hearty protein breakfast muffins will keep you fueled up for the week. If you are practicing intermittent fasting and not eating until noon or so, try having one of these muffins around 4:00pm with a 1/2 cup of berries to ward off that late afternoon slump and keep you going until your dinner meal.

The muffins are easy to customize with your choice of one protein, one cheese, and a mix of vegetables to add taste and nutrition. Experiment with different flavors to create your signature muffin.  Here are a few options we recommend.

  • Protein: Ham, breakfast sausage, chicken, chorizo, ground beef, turkey sausage
  • Cheese: Monterey Jack, swiss, mozzarella, fontina, pepper jack, feta, muenster
  • Veggies: Mushrooms, bell peppers, onions, kale, broccoli, artichokes, spinach, tomatoes

Below is our favorite combination of our ready-to-go muffins
