Savoury Breakfast Muffins

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.

  1. 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. Hi

    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.

  3. 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.

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

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