Egg Muffins

How about these bad boys for a quick, easy and super healthy breakfast?

I hate hearing the excuse “I don’t have time!” We all have time- we have to MAKE time! You have time to grab coffee- grab a donut or go through the drive thru!! You have MORE than enough time to make some healthy muffins at the beginning of the week and grab them as you are headed out the door for work/school in the mornings!!!

Check it out!!

1 carton egg whites

Use any of the following:
red peppers
green peppers
canadian bacon
hot sauce
shredded cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees, grease muffin tins.

Add whichever ingredients you wish to the bottom of each muffin slot.
Pour egg mixture over top.

Bake about 20 minutes or until middles are not runny.

Roasted Chick Peas

Need a yummy, healthy snack idea? Here you go!! Roasted chick peas really are delicious and a great thing to munch on!!
2 cans (14 oz each) Chickpeas
1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
3 tsp spice mix (recipe below)

Spice Mix
2 tsp sugar
1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 1/2 tsp sweet paprika
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp ground allspice (optional)
1/2 tsp salt

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

Drain and wash the chickpeas. Place the clean chickpeas on a layer of paper towels and gently rub the tops of them with another paper towels. Some of the skins will peel away.
You want to get the chickpeas as dry as possible.

While the chickpeas are air drying further, make the spice mix. Pour all of the spices into a bowl and mix well. 

*This recipe will not use all of the mix, so reserve the excess for later.

Place the clean and dry chickpeas in a bowl and toss them with the olive oil. Once coated with oil, sprinkle on the spice mix to taste.

Place the seasoned chickpeas on a lined cookie sheet and put the sheet in the oven for 40-60 minutes. Mix them around about half way through.

Carefully watch the chickpeas at the end as they can quickly burn. Once done, the chickpeas will be browned and crunchy. As the chickpeas cool they will become even crunchier…almost like a cornet.
