Freezer-Friendly Egg White Muffins Recipe

They’re baaaaaack! Egg muffins, that is. After a resounding chorus of “We want more healthy breakfast recipes!” I’ve stepped (back) up to the plate to deliver the next iteration in fast and fresh a.m. options: Freezer-Friendly Egg White Muffins.

Similar to their culinary counterpart, these egg white muffins pack a whole lot of protein into each and every bite. And they’re totally customizable when it comes to fillings, so dream up your ultimate omelette, then whisk all of those ingredients into an egg white base.

But perhaps the greatest selling point is their ability to be baked and then popped into the freezer for a quick and healthy morning meal or snack on-the-go. And having an 8-month-old has brought a whole new meaning to multitasking.

I’m a breakfast super-enthusiast, so when mornings are rushed (i.e. 8 out of 7 days a week!), I grab one or two of these muffins from the freezer, pop them in the microwave for 1 minute and then enjoy a hot meal in one hand while holding my little guy in the other.

    Delicious – I hate cleaning up muffin tins after making egg cupcakes so I used muffin liners. I used kale, roasted zima tomatoes and feta cheese. I also added 2 egg yolks because I like a little bit of colour. Thnx for the recipe!

  2. 5 stars
    These are really good. Carton of egg whites was 2 C so I just adjusted recipe a little. Also subbed non dairy cheese . I think you could def make these “your own”!!

  3. 5 stars
    Thank you for this easy and delicious recipe! Don’t normally use liquid eggs/whites but had just bought a carton, so I used two cups liquid and the recommended recipe… Just delicious!

  4. 5 stars
    Delish! I used chopped green onion because I didn’t have chives but they taste so good. Topped them with some smashed avocado and it was divine. Will definitely make these again.

  5. What size muffin pan should I buy? I’d like to know the approximate size the muffins are supposed to be – meaning large, small?

  6. 5 stars
    Oops, I forgot to leave a 5 star rating!!!!! Plan on testing out some other recipes on this website.

  7. Ran across this web site last night when I was Googling egg white recipes. My daughter and I had these delicious muffins for breakfast this morning. They came out perfect. Added some extra seasonings. However, next time I plan on making parchment liners for the muffin pan. I really don’t like using sprays and it’s too difficult trying to clean the pan afterwards.

  8. Thank you for the super recipe! I subbed fresh kale for the spinach because it is what I had on hand. Also added some green onions from the garden. These are really fantastic! Thanks again!

  9. I am planning to try this recipe and am wondering if frozen chopped spinach would work? If so, should it be microwaved first, then rolled in paper towel to absorb excess liquid?

    Thank you!

    1. Hi Franceska – You can use frozen spinach but, yes, thaw and thoroughly squeeze out as much liquid as possible before mixing together with the other ingredients. :)

  10. HI! I made these with egg whites from a carton, and they came out soggy. I left out the cheese b/c I’m trying to stay low cholesterol. Any suggestions?

    1. Hi Joanie – This is likely from the veggies (especially the spinach and mushrooms), but also make sure to let the muffins cool completely before storing them. :)
