- Avocado oil spray
- 2 cups (480 ml) water
- 1 cup (170 g) quinoa
- 6 large egg whites
- 3 large eggs
cup (115 g) nonfat cottage cheese
cup (30 g) shredded low-moisture Cheddar cheese
teaspoon garlic powder
teaspoon black pepper
- 1 cup (175 g) raw broccoli florets
Preheat the oven to 350°F (177°C). Liberally grease a muffin pan with the avocado oil spray.
Heat the water in a medium saucepan over high heat and bring it to a boil. Add the quinoa, stir it into the water and reduce the heat to low. Cover the quinoa and cook it for 10 minutes, or until the water is absorbed. Set the quinoa aside to cool completely.
In a large bowl, whisk together the egg whites, eggs, cottage cheese, Cheddar cheese, garlic powder, black pepper and salt. Add the broccoli florets and quinoa.
Fill each muffin cavity three-quarters full, distributing the mixture evenly among the cavities.
Bake the muffins for 22 to 25 minutes, until the eggs are fully cooked through.
Remove the muffins from the oven and let them cool in the pan for 5 minutes. Remove the muffins from the pan and serve.
Store the muffins in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
