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

Ingredients

  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 large eggs, separated
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • ½ tsp. GF dried thyme
  • ¼ tsp. sea salt
  • ¼ tsp. GF freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 slices of gluten free bread with crust, cut into ½-inch cubes
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4 oz. GF ham, chopped
  • NOTE: for vegetarian option substitute diced green onions for the GF ham
  • Instructions

  • In a medium size bowl whisk the milk, egg yolks, parsley, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, thyme, salt and pepper. Add the bread cubes and stir to coat the bread with the egg mixture. Cover and refrigerate for a minimum of 1 hour or overnight
  • When ready to bake the muffins, preheat the oven to 350 F. Line a muffin pan with muffin papers and brush them with remainder of olive oil
  • In a small bowl whip the egg whites until they form white peaks. Stir egg whites into the bread mixture, then add cheese and ham and stir to combine
  • Fill each muffin cup with about ½ cup of the filling. Bake for 30 – 35 minutes or until golden
  • Allow the muffins cool for 15 minutes in the muffin pan before serving. Serve warm or room temperature
