Oat, Turkey & Cheese Breakfast Muffins
These delicious egg muffins are great to take with you on the go, especially if made ahead so for busy mornings when you might not have enough time to cook a full breakfast, you can just grab one and run out the door. This breakfast egg muffins recipe is great to work into your meal prep rotation since all you need are eggs, muffin tins, and your choice of fillings. Here, we are doing a protein packed turkey spinach cheese breakfast muffin, but you can easily use ham and cheese or bacon cheddar instead.
If you prepare the chopped spinach, turkey, and cheese ahead of time, all you will need to do is mix it into the breakfast egg muffin batter mix right before you pour it all into the muffin cups. Make sure you grease muffin tins in order to make them easy to remove from the cups. You can add other ingredients like red bell pepper or cracked black pepper in order to give it a bit of spice.
While this isn’t low carb, instead of using flour or cornmeal, it uses healthy oat flour which is healthier for you. These muffins freeze well so you can make batches of it at a time, allow them to cool and place into ziploc bags, and store in your freezer until you need them. Pop them in the oven or the microwave to reheat for an easy and healthy breakfast. I know you’re busy which is why I created this egg muffin recipe in order to make your life healthier and easier. After all, keeping with your weight loss or fitness goals while having easy and tasty meals is important to me.

Oat, Turkey & Cheese Breakfast Muffins
Ingredients for 10 muffins
- 8 slices turkey bacon (from leg meat, without nitrates)
- Wet Ingredients
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/4 cup reduced fat milk (or your favorite plant-based milk)
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup (optional BUT recommended)
- 2 tablespoons avocado oil or olive oil
- Dry ingredients
- 2 cups oat flour (or all-purpose flour but it won’t be gluten-free)
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 tablespoon dried sage or 1 tablespoon fresh sage finely chopped
- 1 cup (4oz) reduced fat cheddar, shredded or cubed
- 1/2 red bell pepper (chopped)
- 1 cup (finely) chopped spinach
- nonstick cooking spray
Set oven to 350F.
Set a nonstick skillet on medium high heat and toss in turkey bacon. To get crispier bacon without burning it, spray the bacon with a little olive oil (or cooking spray) while it cooks in the skillet. When it has finished cooking, chop it into pieces.
In a large bowl, mix together all of the dry ingredients with a fork.
In another bowl, whisk together all of the wet ingredients. Then fold/stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients.
Add the remaining ingredients and mix together using a spatula.
Spray a muffin mold with nonstick cooking spray, then evenly divide the batter among the muffin molds.
Bake in the oven for about 25 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean after you pierce a muffin.
Enjoy!…with more maple syrup if you can swing it. 😎
