  1. Preheat oven to 190°C / 374°F. Whisk eggs and egg whites in a bowl. Alternatively, pulse blend using your blender. Set aside.

  2. In a separate mixing bowl, add zucchini, carrot, capsicum, beetroot, corn, broccoli, onion, cheese and bacon. Pour in eggs, add herbs, and season with salt & pepper. Stir well to combine.

  3. Line 2-3 x muffin tins with cupcake / muffin liners. Spoon mixture evenly into the liners. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until egg is cooked. To ensure muffins are thoroughly cooked, turn the oven off after 30 minutes and leave the muffins in the oven for a further 5 minutes, as the eggs retain heat and will continue to cook.

  4. Allow muffins to cool slightly before removing them from the tins. Enjoy Chokka-full muffins hot or cold, on their own or with a salad or vegetables. They’re great for the kids lunchboxes and make for a great meal choice with any of the liquid meals / protein shakes online.

  5. TCB Tips:

    - You can substitute bacon with 150g lean ham.

    - If there's excess liquid in the bowl after mixing all ingredients together, drain the bowl and add 1-2 level tbsp of corn flour. This will help absorb any moisture. This small amount of flour is negligible when portioned between 12+ muffins. Chokka-Full muffins can be consumed anytime.

    - I highly recommend a good spicy tomato or sweet chilli relish when serving these muffins.

    - Double up on the ingredients and make a few batches of these muffins. Place 1-2 muffins into a zip-lock bag and freeze. Muffins can be stored frozen for up to 2 months.
