How to make egg muffins for kids

Making these healthy egg muffins is super easy. It only took me about 15 minutes from start to finish.

Sometimes, I’ll add in whatever I can find in the fridge (carrots, mushrooms, onions, broccoli, ground meat, etc) to make different variations. My picky eaters love the spinach and bacon combo so I’m featuring it here.

Although I used to make these in mini-sized muffin tins for my baby. I now make these in regular-sized muffin tins for the entire family. Please note that the ingredients is for 12 muffins. You may adjust the amounts accordingly if you’re making bite-sized muffins.

6. Pour the egg and milk mixture onto each muffin cup. The muffin will ‘rise’ during baking so I only pour into half of each muffin cup.

7. Sprinkle flaxseed and shredded cheese.

Egg muffins for kids ingredient variations

Variations for this egg muffin recipe are endless.

You can add or remove ingredients according to what you currently have, what your kids likings are, or any dietary restrictions. I’ve tried to replace the spinach with broccoli and honestly, it doesn’t taste as good (I think it’s because no one in this household likes broccoli 😅).

You can use any type of cheese as well. I’ve added parmesan and shredded cheddar before. You can add some butter or heavy cream if you want to make these egg muffins more caloric (I used to add these for my underweight son).

Oh, and for the avocado oil spray, I made it with ghee before instead, and it tasted really good too.

You may add shredded sweet potato, chopped mushrooms, and even Italian seasoning. The possibilities are endless!

How long do egg muffins stay good for

When stored in an airtight container, egg muffins can stay good for up to 5 days in the fridge or 30 days in the freezer.

I usually reheat the egg muffins in the microwave on high power for 30 seconds. For a crispier texture, you can reheat it in the air fryer for about 5 minutes.

Are egg muffins freezer friendly?

Absolutely! When I was making bite-sized muffins for my toddlers, I used to make a whole batch and freeze the leftovers. When serving, I pop the frozen egg muffins in the microwave or the air fryer.

Now that I’m making it for my whole family, we would gobble everything up leaving no room for the freezer 😋.
