This tasty vegan, chickpea flour omelet muffin, has been my obsession lately. They are essentially loaded with nutrients and proteins making it that perfect ‘pick-me-up’ breakfast. To be more specific, these savory muffins are the best option if you are having a busy morning, and you just need something to grab for a second and be out of the door.
The best part about these savory muffins is that they are all plant-based. Yes, you heard that right! All nourishing, fresh and healthy ingredients that will give you that much-needed boost in the morning.
Don’t let the omelet word fool you! If you are intolerant to eggs, then this is the best plant-based solution to up your protein intake. That makes the omelet muffin an all-round crowd-pleaser.
So, what exactly is an omelet muffin?
As much as I’m in love with Tofu scramble, it can sometimes get boring. Thankfully, they are not the only egg substitute for vegans out there. I finally discovered the chicken flour omelet muffins just a few weeks ago, and I’ve fallen in love with them ever since.
These savory muffins are quite easy to prep, and most of the ingredients in them you probably already have in your kitchen except for the chickpea flour, of course! What’s more, you can easily customize them to your specific tastes once you have a hang of the recipe.
Are the chickpea omelet muffins Vegan friendly?
These chickpea omelet muffins are made from a wide variety of veggies, chickpea flour, nutritional yeast, onion, spinach and mushrooms. That makes these chickpea omelet muffins completely vegan friendly. On top of that, they are gluten-free and vegetarian.
Is it okay to freeze your chickpea omelet muffins?
In case you are wondering, these muffins are absolutely freezer friendly. And this is another reason why they are the ideal choice of meal prep. In most cases, I make them ahead and freeze them for later. And I must say, they eventually come in handy on those busy and hectic mornings when I need a grab and go breakfast.
If you want to grab these muffins the next morning, you can place them in the fridge overnight to thaw them out. Then you can quickly pop them in the oven for precisely 8 minutes at 350 degrees in the morning. You will love how fresh and delicious they will taste. I love every aspect of these muffins, and I call them easy, delicious, and healthy!
