Egg (Anti-Mc)Muffins

In spite of containing mainly eggs and no grains whatsoever, these guys really do resemble muffins, with their surprisingly bread-like consistency, although they are much tastier, healthier, and more filling than bread. (They are not at all eggy in texture, as the coconut flour soaks up a lot of that moisture.) In my estimation bread’s main utility is as a butter carrier, so I ate my muffins hot with delicious slabs of melting grass-fed butter. I added a few berries and some coconut milk kefir and had a well-rounded and filling breakfast. These muffins are also highly transportable; they are one of my new favorite things to pack in Nick’s lunches. They would also make a great alternative ‘bun,’ if you have a hankering for a sandwich. Maybe a cheese and sausage anti-McMuffin?

12 eggs
2 tsp salt
2 tsp pepper
1 tsp celery salt
1 scant cup coconut flour
1 onion, chopped
1 cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes
1 10oz package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and water squeezed out (this is a more economical version that I prefer – if you have fresh spinach on hand, however, just lightly wilt it, chop, and toss it in)

Preheat your oven to 400. Thoroughly blend your eggs, seasonings, and coconut flour. (I used a hand mixer. Fold in the onion, tomatoes, and spinach. Plop your batter by large spoonfuls onto greased baking sheets and form into English muffin shapes. Bake for 15 minutes. My recipe made 18 generously-sized muffins.

    These look yummy! I’m not a huge coconut flour fan (it always seems to heavy for me..) but I’m going to try these! I need to make some more homemade breakfast sausage, and these would be so yummy with that! Thanks!

      It definitely has a different texture – tends to dry baked goods out a bit more. But with jumbo eggs and butter, I think that these strike a nice balance. Add some sausage and it should be a delicious breakfast.

    Thanks for submitting this recipe to my Weekend Gourmet blog carnival. I want to try this, as I have coconut flour but not using it too much. Also, I am tired of making eggs the same old ways!

    Thanks again!

  9. These muffins sound so delicious, and so healthy too. The sun dried tomatoes and spinach would give them such a great flavour. What a fantastic, nutrient packed treat! Thank you for sharing them with Let’s Do Brunch.

  10. These are fascinating muffins. After all, I never had an anti – Mc Muffin before. I plan to have one, some time, in the future, hopefully, the near future. This is my kind of breakfast which is one reason, this will be featured tomorrow at April @ The 21st Century Housewife and at My Sweet and Savory, Let’s Do Brunch.
    Please stop by and admire your handiwork and bring food for next week’s brunch/

  11. I wrote a book to you but it seems to have disappeared. Forgive me for not rewriting it. I do want to tell you that you are being featured, tomorrow on Let’s Do Brunch.

    I love the idea of anti Mc Muffin.
