  • Healthy Egg Mini- Muffin Cups Recipe

I know you read “muffin cups” in the title, but these are not muffins! They are eggs baked in mini muffin cups.

I know it is important to eat a nice healthy breakfast, especially with protein. Unfortunately, some mornings it is difficult. I came up with this recipe so I could heat up something quick and healthy on those very busy mornings.


The beauty of this recipe is you can use just about anything you’ve got in the fridge. I used zucchini and cheese (hard for me to go without the cheese), but there are so many other possibilities. You could add in green peppers and maybe a little finely chopped onion.

Let us know what you would add. Enjoy!

Healthy Egg Muffin Cups

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 12 minutes

Total Time: 18 minutes

Healthy Egg Muffin Cups


  • 12 eggs
  • 3-4 tablespoons of milk
  • 1 small zucchini, grated
  • 4 oz shredded cheese, grated (pick your favorite - I like Colby Jack)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F (170 C). Generously spray your mini muffin tin (or use a silicon muffin pan).
  2. Wisk the eggs with the milk. Add salt and pepper if you like.
  3. Mix in the zucchini and the cheese. I grated a large zucchini and only used half of it. Sprinkle in as much or as little as you like. Same for the cheese.
  4. Fill your muffin cups about 2/3 full. The eggs will puff up a bit so don't fill the cups all the way to the top.
  5. Bake at 375 F for 10-12 minutes or until the eggs are cooked on the top.
  6. Let cool slightly for a few minutes and scoop out of pan. Enjoy!

These freeze great!

You can fast freeze (on a cookie sheet in the freezer) for about an hour. Once they are slightly frozen, you can put them all in a freezer bag. Now, you have a yummy healthy breakfast you can have quickly and easily. You can even eat them on the go.
To reheat, put in the microwave for 15-20 or until heated through. It is that easy!

How much do these cost?

Right now a dozen eggs is $1.49 at Aldi. One zucchini is about $.40 and the cheese is about $.50.

Total: $2.39 – only $.20 per muffin!

    You have 350 and 375 on the recipe, which one is the correct temp? Thanks!

      Sorry – either one will work. I normally do 375. I’ll update that.
