Veggie Egg White Muffins

Howdy there folks, Amanda here! I’m going to let you all in on a little secret of mine, I love egg whites and use them every single day. If you’ve ever visited my Instagram page, then it’s not much of a secret. They’re an absolute staple in my diet and after using them for so long I’ve come up with some fun ways to use them. Today, I am going to share one of my favorite recipes using egg whites- veggie egg white muffins! 
As you all are aware by now, I am constantly on-the-go as a busy college girl. Having pre-prepared foods like energy balls, breads, and muffins are fantastic for when I’m running out the door. These veggie egg white muffins are great as a snack or to incorporate into your main meals as a source of protein. They’re so easy to make and take very little time to prep and cook, so basically perfect for when you’re in a time crunch.
One thing I love about these muffins is that you can add just about any vegetable you have on hand. It’s so easy to switch them up depending on what veggies you’re feeling or what is currently in your fridge. As unappealing as it sounds, I like to think of these muffins as a kind of veggie garbage disposal. Hear me out friends, this recipe is perfect for the times when you have that one random carrot you aren’t sure what to do with, or that zucchini that is looking a little rough. All you need to do is chop it up, throw it in a muffin tin with egg whites and problem solved. Happy cooking everyone, hope you all find this recipe as convenient as I do!

    1. Hi, Nancy! I’m so glad you’re excited to try the recipe. It’s definitely a simple way to enjoy some veggies and protein! Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I tried this recipe this morning. OMG!!! It was the best ever! Soooooooo good, even my husband liked it.
    Sidenote: I had extra egg whites and I hate to waste things so I made an extra six little egg muffins. However, since I had used all my veggies and I really didn’t feel like cutting up and sauteing more, I just added some bacon bits and fried onions. I know, HUGELY fattening, but oh so good and no food wasted. Lol!
    Thank you for the recipe Shannon! Loved it! I’ll be posting mine on my FB page and probably in my blog with a link to you.

Thrilled to hear how much you and hubby enjoyed the recipe and the bacon/onion addition sounds like an easy and delicious way to eliminate food waste (in full support of that decision!). Thanks for sharing and look forward to hearing what other KISS in the Kitchen recipes you try out. Blessings to you!
