Breakfast egg muffins on Slimming World

If you follow Slimming World and get bored of using your healthy extra b choices for breakfast then why not try something a little bit different?

The breakfast muffins are almost syn free if using one healthy extra a choice. If you choose to have milk as your second healthy a choice then you could make these syn free by using milk from the allowance.

The milk in the recipe is around 1 syn and the cheese could be 1 healthy extra a choice or 6 syns approx.

The vegetables in these muffins make them low in calories and nice and filling for you.

Delicious hot and cold they are great for breakfast on the go and can of course be made the night before if this makes it easier.

Adapting the muffins

If you want to change this recipe up a bit you can swap around the vegetables to add different flavours.

I would always recommend however avoiding watery vegetables like mushrooms and tomatoes as they tend to prevent the muffins from setting as well.

To add a bit of a kick you could also add a pinch of chilli powder or some chilli flakes!
