Savoury or sweet? Healthy alternative to a boring breakfast

My boyfriend wants to eat healthy and squeeze a quality breakfast but he can't eat as bland as me.
You see, I am a creature of habits...if I have to eat the same thing every morning- I have no problem with that.
My preferred  choice is usually just a couple of eggs, some avocado or natural butter and some veg on the side...I know ...very bland , but it works for me.
You see, when I eat high protein breakfast with a nice amount of fats first in the morning , my energy levels stays up for hours.
..and i don't end up being moody...because when I am hungry...I hope God will keep you safe...I can be a cow πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

But saying that I decided to create something that is easy to implement in a busy lifestyle,  something that does not require too much effort ,time...hustle πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚...and it's not as bland as just eggs lol.

I came up with 2 different versions of muffins
( they can be eaten for a breakfast or just a snack...difference is in the quantity)

Option one : savoury

These muffins are high in protein and healthy fats with a small amount of low GI carbs( meaning - slow release carbohydrate)

Ingredients for savoury muffins are:

1 grated courgette
Handful of mushrooms- also grated
Fresh parsley - chopped
Large handful of fresh spinach - chopped
100g of grated parmesan cheese
1 tbsp of sundried tomatoes
Black pepper
100 g of tri-colour quinoa cooked with 1 chicken cube stock (drained)
2 whole eggs
4 egg whites

Mix all of the ingredients together,
Preheat the oven to 180°C /350 F

Fill your greased muffin tray with it and then place it in the oven for 30 mins.

Option 2 : sweet

For this you will need:

100g of oat bran ( I prefer to use it instead of oats as it's got higher content of fibre in it - meaning - it takes longer to digest it so it keeps you feeling full for longer)
3 tbsp of chia seeds
1 handful of mixed unsalted nuts chopped
1 tsp of cinnamon powder
2 scoops of vanilla protein powder ( low sugar and low fat)
1 mashed ripen banana
1/2 of a large ripen avocado or 1 small one
1 tbsp of sultanas
3 tbsp of natural Greek yogurt ( my favourite is natural stained yogurt from Faye)
4 egg whites
Pinch of pink Himalayan salt
Few drops of vanilla extract (optional)

Mix all of the dry ingredients together.
For avocado ,banana,yogurt, vanilla extract ,egg whites and spices- use blender.
Put all in a container and blend it together.

After that mix both, dry and wet ingredients together.

Preheat the oven to 200°C/400F

Fill up the muffin tray greased with coconut oil .

Place the tray in the oven for 20 mins.

At the end of baking ,use a toothpick to check if the muffins are ready. If there is nothing sticking to the toothpick- you got them just rightπŸ˜‰

I hope you will enjoy both recipes...let me know what you think...

Mine has already been approved 😜πŸ’ͺ

Bon appetite 😊
