Recipe Tips

  • Use Omega-3 enriched eggs to increase the nutritional value of this recipe because every extra nutritional value helps.
  • Test the egg is fresh by putting it in a bowl of water. If it lays on its side on the bottom, it is fresh and if it stands upright on the bottom, it is ok, but needs to be eaten as soon as possible. However, if it floats to the top then do not eat it.
  • To reheat, put the muffins in a microwave for a minute.
