Savoury Breakfast Muffins

My original Breakfast Muffins were a huge hit. These are a savoury spin, with bacon, that also turn perfectly into a bread. Perfect for breakfast in a flash and they double as a snack if required. You’re welcome.

Ingredients (Makes 8)

  • 2½ cups almond/hazelnut meal*
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar (ACV)
  • 4 eggs, free range
  • ½ cup grass-fed butter, melted
  • 1 zucchini, grated
  • ½ cup grated sweet potato
  • 2 rashers bacon
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C.
  2. To a large bowl, add almond/hazelnut meal, baking powder, salt and ACV.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk eggs and add to the above.
  4. Add melted butter and grated vegies.
  5. Finely chop bacon and fry off in coconut oil. Add to the bowl and combine well.
  6. Transfer into lightly greased muffin trays and bake for 30 minutes or until cooked through and firm to touch. Allow to cool slightly before serving. Leftovers will keep in the fridge for 4-5 days and freeze well.

*I haven’t tried a nut free version yet, but please feel free to experiment. It’s on my list too.

    This sounds great, been looking for different LCHF breakfast options. Do you squeeze the water out of the zucchini before adding it to the mix or do you need the liquid? Thanks, Zoe

  2. Steph

    Keep it as per the recipe Zoe.

    Just made these. The mix was very dry, and they are quite crumbly after cooking. I’m not having any success when using almond meal. Back to the drawing board for me.

    Might stick to your fritatta until I can sort out where I’m going wrong.

    Looking forward to trying your other recipes.

    Tried these during the week, they were great for breakky and morning tea. Even my kids loved them!

    Mine were a little dry, my zuchinni was quite large so not sure why, should I just had water?

    Hi Steph,
    Is there a particular brand or supplier of bacon that you prefer? Do you use nitrate free bacon? I cannot find any locally which is why I have cut it completely out of my diet but I am interested in your thoughts.

    Hi Steph it might sound like a dumb question but would you have 1 or 2 of your muffins for breakfast? thanks. Lenna

  8. Steph

    Personally two would get me through until lunch, so see if that works for you.

  9. Elle

    Can I substitute carrot for sweet potato as I’m far from any shops?

    Hi Steph
    Can you please advise what you would replace the nut meal with for a nut free version?
    Thank you

    do you have nutritional info for this, it carb content?

  12. Steph

    Sorry to hear that Sara. Add a quarter of a cup of water to your next mixture and that should do the trick.
