Broccolini Breakfast Muffins

One word: YUMMY!  I love these savory breakfast muffins!  They are super easy to throw together, are super healthy, and are absolutely scrumptious!

There’s plenty of veggies in these guys, such as onion, garlic, shallots, arugula,… but the one I’m going to touch on here is broccolini!  Broccolini is a type of broccoli that has a little bit of a sweeter taste than regular broccoli.  Don’t let that make you think it doesn’t still share all of the health benefits of broccoli though!

On top of all that, broccolini is high in folate, vitamin C, Beta-carotene, and potassium, which is where a lot of those health benefits come from!

So, those are just a few of the reasons why I love broccolini!  It’s definitely a veggie you want to be adding to your diet regularly, and these breakfast muffins provide a great way to do that!


Ingredients (makes 9-10 muffins):

  • 2 cups chopped broccolini
  • 2 cups chopped arugula
  • 1 chopped red onion
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 chopped shallot
  • 7 eggs
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 tsp. Olive oil
  • Sea salt, to taste


1.) Begin by preheating the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray a muffin tin with olive oil.

2.) Heat olive oil over medium heat.  Add the onion and shallots.  Cook for 3 minutes.  Add the broccolini and garlic cloves.  Cook for 3 minutes.  Add the arugula and cook until completely wilted.

3.) To the side, stir together the egg whites, the grated cheese, the eggs, and a bit of salt.

4.) Distribute the veggie mixture evenly between cups in a muffin tin.  Portion out the egg mixture into each of the broccolini mixture-filled tins, and place the muffins in the oven.

5.) Bake the muffins for about twenty minutes, and serve them immediately.

See?  Super simple, and SO yummy!  Enjoy!
