For a sweet craving this weekend, try out this healthier version of Rhubarb Crumble with Erin! Check her out @crazyaboutdiabetes on instagram! She says "Rhubarb crumble is my favourite ❤️- it’s tangy, beautifully pink and goes so well as a summer dessert. @ibdmedical gave me some inspiration to make a Rhubarb Crumble into a blood sugar friendly version. This Rhubarb Orange Crisp recipe uses less sugar and adds flaked almonds and almond flour for the crumble part."
Preparation Time: Approximately 10 minutes
Cooking Time: Approximately 15-20 minutes
- 6 large eggs
- 1 cup fresh spinach, chopped
- 1/2 cup mushrooms, sliced
- 1/4 cup diced bell peppers (any color)
- 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese (optional)
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Cooking spray or olive oil for greasing
- Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease a muffin tin with cooking spray or olive oil.
- In a skillet, lightly sauté the mushrooms, bell peppers, and spinach until the vegetables are slightly softened. Remove from heat and let them cool.
- In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs until well combined. Season with salt and pepper.
- Add the sautéed vegetables to the beaten eggs and mix well.
- Pour the egg and vegetable mixture into the greased muffin tin, filling each cup about three-quarters full.
- Sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese (if using) evenly over each muffin cup.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 18-20 minutes or until the egg muffins are set and slightly golden on top.
- Remove from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes. Use a knife or spatula to gently loosen the edges, then transfer the egg muffins to a wire rack to cool completely.
- Serve the spinach and mushroom egg muffins as a delicious and nutritious breakfast option.
