These low carb and paleo Apple Bacon Muffins are so fluffy, moist, delicious, and they are a perfect make-ahead breakfast!
Guys, these muffins! I got this idea after making my apple bacon pancakes, and how much I loved them. The two flavors go together so well and I just love that combination of sweet and savory.
While pancakes are amazing, I wanted something that I can make ahead of time since mornings are when I’m the most productive and I’d rather spend that time getting some work done than in the kitchen. Enter: these Paleo Apple Bacon Muffins!
These muffins can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week, and I’ve been just toasting them in the oven in the morning and eating them with eggs. SO delicious. They are even better with a slather of grass-fed butter on them, and it’s a great go-to snack as well.
This recipe makes 6 large muffins, but you can double the recipe for a standard 12-muffin pan. I actually highly recommend you do with these Paleo Apple Bacon Muffins because you won’t regret it if you do. There’s something so delightful when apple and bacon comes together, and I’m pretty sure we all need more of it in our lives… Right? Just go make these if you agree!
I’m a creature of habit, and I crave routine. However, I find that I get in a rut with my meals and snacks often because of this. I recently realized that I’ve been eating the same thing for breakfast everyday: 2 fried eggs, sautéed vegetables, and an open-faced avocado toast on my paleo yeast-free bread. While this is delicious (I mean… I couldn’t eat it everyday if I didn’t love it), it was time to change it up a bit for my sanity.
Being that I’m the most productive in the morning, I try not to spend too much time in the kitchen in order to get some work done. So I decided whip up something that could be made ahead and stores well throughout the week. These bacon and chive paleo muffins fit the bill perfectly and I couldn’t be happier about how they turned out.
These savory muffins are filling, great for when you are doing a sugar detox, and full of healthy and nourishing fats and protein to get your day started right. I love toasting it and slathering on some grass-fed butter before devouring it. They are also easily portable if you are too busy to eat at home in the morning.
Also, if you are into add-ins other than bacon and chives, you can easily substitute them with ingredients of your choice. Don’t you love easily customizable recipes? Hope you enjoy this easy, healthy recipe!
