A great way to start your day is with these high protein savoury French toast muffins. The smoky flavour of ham with a little cheese adds plenty of flavour to these muffins. Ordinarily, muffins are made with flour, but in this recipe I used gluten free bread, making this a super easy breakfast recipe.

But don’t stop at breakfast! These flavourful gluten free French toast muffins make a tasty high protein anytime snack. Pop them in your lunch box or enjoy the muffins after a good work out
