If I’m in a rush in the morning, a lot of times I will tend to just grab something super quick for breakfast like a muffin or nutrition bar. These breakfast muffins seemed like they would be a great option for that type of situation. I could make them one evening and have them ready to grab on-the-go during the week. Plus, the muffins combine many different breakfast foods together into one: eggs, bacon, cheese and oats.
A Healthy and Quick Breakfast
The recipe was really easy and simple to make. We already had pretty much all of the ingredients in our house, so I didn’t have to make a special shopping trip, which was nice.
Once I had all of the ingredients set out, it only took about 5 minutes to mix the batter. I then spread it out evenly in a muffin tin.
With no milk, butter or sugar added, I could definitely tell that these muffins would be a little different. On the other hand, they looked better than expected, and I knew that they would be healthy. The cinnamon also gave the batter a nice smell as they baked in the oven, so I was optimistic about trying them out.

It took them around 15 minutes to finish baking, and then I let them cool for about 10 minutes.
Unfortunately, my wife and I weren’t big fans of these muffins. They didn’t taste bad, but there just wasn’t much flavor to them. The texture also was not the most appealing. I usually like muffins to be soft and moist, but these were pretty dry and bland.

It’s possible that the muffins could be better with some tweaks to the recipe. We’re looking forward to trying out some more Club Red recipes soon!
We’re trying new heart-healthy recipes and will share the results with you. All recipes are from Club Red, UVA’s heart health club for women.
