These protein-packed Veggie Omelet Muffins can be easily made in advance and are naturally gluten-free and vegetarian – The perfect bite-sized breakfast on the go for busy mornings!


Late breakfast on weekends is one of the things I love the most, and in our family pretty much always involves eggs.

Whether it is simply poached eggs on avocado toast, all kinds of Italian frittata or classic French omelettes, fresh local eggs are the stars of our breakfast time.

Lately, I’ve been quite obsessed with these easy protein-packed veggie omelet muffins.

Naturally gluten-free and vegetarian, these are totally customizable to meet your taste. I personally like to keep them pretty simple and packed with veggies.

I love making a big batch on Sunday morning and serve them piping hot from the oven. But, they’re just as tasty at room temperature, making them perfect picnics/lunchbox material.

They’re also easily freezable, so you can enjoy these savoury egg muffins all week long.

All you have to do is pop them in the microwave for a couple of minutes to have a delicious breakfast ready to go.

Veggie Omelet Muffins Ingredients

These easy Veggie Omelet Muffins come together in less than 30 minutes and can be easily made ahead.

All you need 1 bowl, 5 minutes of prep and a bunch of fresh simple ingredients such as eggs, milk and veggies.

I used fresh courgette (zucchini), mixed bell peppers and shallots (white/red onion works just a great).

Feel absolutely free to use your favourite veggies or whatever you’ve got in the fridge. I’ll leave a few other ingredients combo below!

Make sure you don’t skip the milk, as it gives a nice airy texture and makes these omelet muffins spongy and lighter.
