Looking for a quick and easy recipe that is naturally gluten free and everyone will love? Want something super fast and easy, but not lacking in taste for Easter? Keep reading.
Not only are they easy, but if you are trying to get the family involved it is fun for every member to personalize their muffins, plus they can make them to satisfy their special tastes or needs.
My Gluten Free Teen is still mostly vegetarian, so she had hers veggie only.
I have a dairy allergy, so mine were sans (without) dairy.
This recipe is only limited by your imagination.
Plus these would be a super easy and yummy treat for Easter morning. You could even make them the night before and just warm them in the morning.
I found the original recipe on Nom Nom Paleo and modified it as follows to accommodate our family.
Gluten Free Egg Muffins
- 12 large eggs
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 t garlic powder
- salt and pepper to taste (at least 1/2 teaspoon of each)
Optional extra ingredients:
- Cheddar cheese
- chopped sweet bell peppers
- cooked GF sausage (Jones Dairy Farm's meats are certified GF)
- chopped spinach
- chopped mushrooms
Preheat oven to 375 F and grease a 12-cup standard size muffin tin. The muffins will stick if you do not grease it well, so take care with this step.
Mix together the eggs, baking powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Whisk it all until well blended.
Fill the bottom of the muffin tins until they are about 1/3 full with the extra ingredients.
The Gluten Free Teen put a tiny bit of cheese with the bell peppers, olives, onions and mushrooms in hers.
My carnivores went with the GF sausage, cheese and onions.
Being allergic to dairy, I did a combination of veggies and sausage, without any cheese. You can substitute dairy free cheese, but I don't think it needs it.
Give the egg mixture one last stir and pour over the top. They will rise a little as they bake, so only fill until each tin is 3/4ths full.
Bake for 15 - 20 minutes, until it starts to brown.
Yields 12 muffins
This is my last post before Easter, so from my family to yours, happy Easter!
Life can be challenging at times, but take time to reflect on the blessings and not the hardships.
Appreciate the small joys (like being healthy) and don't worry about all you can't have.
Finally, my wish is that you enjoy your family and loved ones (and don't eat too much candy)!
