Want a quick and healthy breakfast? Try these super-filling breakfast Paleo Protein Muffins.
The less cooking I have to do during the week, the more likely it is I eat healthy foods. And no I don’t mean resorting to takeout, I mean batch-cooking things on the weekend, so that much of what I eat is ready to go, or requires minimal effort.
Just like these Paleo Protein Muffins. The components can easily be made before, and then assembled quickly the morning of.
The Best Gluten-Free, Grain Free Muffins
I recently discovered Simple Mills Artisanal Bread Mix. It is made with almond flour, arrowroot flour, flaxmeal, and tapioca flour. This is by far, the best tasting paleo, gluten-free bread I have ever tasted. It actually tastes like….well, bread!
Don’t get me wrong, I love my gluten-free breads, but they are often so dense and heavy, and sometimes too grainy for me. And while this bread isn’t light like a say, wonder bread, it does have more of a springy, fluffy bread like texture, especially when it is just out of the oven.
Paleo Protein Muffins will Sustain You for Hours
Made with three components – Simple Mills Artisanal Bread mix, hard-boiled eggs, and avocado, these come together fast, if you pre-make the muffins and hard-boil and peel the eggs on the weekend. You can also just scramble some eggs morning of, if you forget (or don’t like) hard-boiled eggs.
Two muffins makes for a super-filling serving. The healthy protein, fat, and fiber will keep you fueled for hours.
