Keto Zucchini Breakfast Muffins

This is a delicious zucchini breakfast bites recipe. While it may seem to require more ingredients than a basic bacon and egg breakfast, this recipe is to ensure you will have tasty, nutritious, colorful and flavorful muffins.

You can make these muffins in advance, and keep them in the fridge for the next day. For example, you can prepare these on Sunday and eat them throughout the week. They can also be great for lunch too.

The main ingredients are eggs, bacon, zucchini, shredded cheese, heavy cream, and coconut milk. To enhance the taste, we use a little bit of sour cream, mayonnaise, and mustard.

You can either use almond milk or coconut milk for this recipe. For mayonnaise, make sure you buy the one with no added sugar, or simply make your own mayonnaise.

Finally, to add more flavor and vitamins, we mixed in salt and pepper along with some chopped dill, jalapeno and red pepper into the dish.

How To

Start by shredding the zucchini and adding some salt. Set them aside and move on to the jalapeno, dill and red pepper; cut them into small pieces.

Fry the bacon for 5 minutes until crispy, or use the microwave instead. Then cut them into small pieces.

Squeeze the zucchini to release the extra liquid from inside, then add the cheese and bacon to them.

Mix the eggs with sour cream, mustard, heavy cream, and mayo and coconut milk and flavor with salt and pepper. 

Fill ⅔ of each muffin cup with both mixtures and stir well.
