Alright, this recipe is a for super healthy egg muffins packed full of healthy fats and complex carbs.

I love to make a whole bunch and keep some in the fridge for the week and then freeze the rest and simply heat them up when you are on the go! It is always nice to have options like this for days you just don’t have the time for a nice breakfast (which is more often than one wishes).
