Muffins for breakfast? Why not! Muffins are an easy breakfast option to take with you, that can be quickly prepared for the whole week at the weekends and on top of everything else taste really delicious. Whether prepared with porridge, crunchy or muesli – we think muffins are a good breakfast option if you have little time in the morning. That’s why we’re introducing 6 different breakfast muffin ideas to you today. From sweet to savoury, there’s something for everyone 😉
1. Baked porridge from the muffin pan
In our porridge trends 2019 we have already introduced the “Baked Porridge” to you. The baked porridge can easily be converted into a to-go version in the form of muffins. To prepare the baked porridge from the muffin tray, mix 100 grams of your favourite porridge base with 2 eggs (or egg replacement), 2 tablespoons of baking powder, 100ml of milk of your choice, 2 tablespoons of nut butter, fruit and a sweetening option of your choice. Then bake the muffins at 180 degrees for about 25 minutes in the oven. If you like it fruity our Organic Strawberry Chia Porridge is perfect for this recipe. For those who like to have a savoury breakfast, the baked porridge from the muffin pan can also be prepared with our Pumpkin Tomato Porridge.
2. Filled puff pastry from the muffin tray
You can easily prepare another breakfast idea by turning your muffin tin around. This way you can easily prepare puff pastry bowls. For this you need some puff pastry, which you cut into square pieces and place over the muffin bulge to form small bowls. Bake the puff pastry in your oven according to the package description. There are no limits to your imagination when filling the puff pastry bowls! For example, you can fill them with yoghurt, berries and your favourite crunchy or porridge. The best thing about this recipe? You can also eat the bowl.
3. Oatmeal cups
Delicious breakfast bowls can also be easily prepared with oat flakes. To prepare the oatmeal cups, first smush two ripe bananas and add about 100g honey. Then add 125g of oat flakes and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and mix the ingredients well together. Put 2 tablespoons of the finished dough into your muffin cups and press it firmly with your fingers so that a hollow is formed in the middle. Bake the oatmeal cups in the oven at 175° for 10-12 minutes. After they are ready, you can take them out of the tray and fill them with whatever you want. For example, you can fill them with yoghurt and berries or with some yoghurt and crunchy.
4. Savoury porridge muffins with spinach and feta
If you like a savoury breakfast, we recommend these spinach feta muffins with porridge. You will need about 300g of spinach, 200g feta, 100g oats and a savoury porridge of your choice. Moreover, you need 150g of flour, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 2 eggs, 60ml olive oil, 250ml milk or vegetable drink and some salt and pepper. First you defrost the spinach and remove the excess liquid. Then you mix the spinach with the eggs, olive oil, milk and season it with salt and pepper. Next, mix all the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients. Finally, carefully stir the feta cubes into the muffin dough. Bake the muffins in the oven for 15 minutes at 200 degrees.
5. Good morning Muesli Muffins
