Breakfast Turkey Muffins

A quick and clean breakfast recipe.

A phrase we’ve likely all heard a thousand times… “breakfast is the most important meal of the day”. Even on busy mornings, it’s important to start your day with a healthy meal that fuels your body for the day ahead. While there’s of course a deeper science behind the importance of breakfast, I’ve personally found that it allows me to feel energized, refreshed, and ready to tackle the day. 

This Turkey Muffin recipe has been a staple of mine for years and is the perfect addition to your meal prep routine. I bake at the beginning of the week and microwave daily for breakfast or perfect for a midday snack. These protein packed muffins are a game changer, especially on the days that I don’t have the time to cook a well-rounded breakfast from scratch. The savory delights are not only loaded with flavor but also incredibly healthy and a breeze to whip up… not to mention they’re family approved! This recipe easily combines elements from three main food groups into conveniently shaped muffins… oats, colorful veggies, and lean ground turkey seasoned to perfection. It’s a super easy, guilt-free indulgence that your taste buds, body, and morning routine will thank you for!
