These muffins are high is protein and rich in fibre, perfect for those who are always on the go. The baked muffins can be frozen in freezer bags and stored for up to three months and then warmed up in the microwave.

They can also be made as patties and eaten with a salad or, even better, they can be turned into burgers! To keep them vegetarian, replace the meat with chopped tofu, chickpeas or even edamame – bare-minimum wash-up and deliciousness overload, not to mention healthy!
