Scallions & Cheese Egg Muffins


About this Recipe

Egg muffins are a fun way to have breakfast after bariatric surgery. And yes, we hear you thinking, another egg recipe? But the truth is, that eggs are easy to prep and they’re nutritious too. It’s not just about the protein. One egg has about 6 grams of protein which is nice, but the choline found in egg yolks also has great benefits.

Choline is needed to regulate mood, memory and muscle control amongst other things. 

And did you know that you can prep these 2 days in advance so that you can take them to lunch the next day! Now, let’s show you how to make these scallions & cheese egg muffins.
