7 High-Protein Breakfasts Ready in 5 Minutes or Less


10. Savory Breakfast Muffins

When people think of breakfast muffins, they usually think of the sweet varieties, such as blueberry or banana nut. However, instead of starting your day with a lot of sugar that has you crashing and burning by noon, try these savory muffins loaded with eggs, oats, Canadian bacon, red pepper, and cheddar cheese. This is a great breakfast for those days when you need a lot of energy!


6 large eggs
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1/4 cup chopped Canadian bacon
1/2 cup chopped red pepper
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1 cup flour
1/3 cup old-fashioned oats
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs and applesauce until combined.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, oats, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and pepper. Add to the egg mixture and stir until just combined. Mix in the cheese, Canadian bacon, pepper, and parsley.
  4. Prepare a 12-muffin pan with non-stick spray. Pour in the batter and bake at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until baked through. The tops of the muffins should be set and a toothpick poked through the muffin should come out clean. Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes and then remove from pan.
  5. Once cooled, wrap individually in plastic wrap and place in a freezer bag and store in the freezer. When ready to eat, remove plastic wrap, wrap in a paper towel and microwave for 30-45 seconds until heated through.
