Broccoli Cheddar Quinoa Egg Muffins make the perfect healthy, gluten-free breakfast or snack and with just 76 calories per muffin, they are completely guilt free.

I am one of those people who always need tons of healthy snacks and grab-and-go foods around. When hunger strikes, I need to eat something almost immediately or it gets pretty ugly. And without healthy options, I ended up grabbing anything I can find to satisfy my hunger and usually regret my choice later on.

One of my favorite things to have on hand are quinoa egg muffins since they pack in lots of fiber and protein, which keep me energized and full. This version is packed with broccoli and cheddar cheese but they work with virtually any combination of cheese and veggies you like. Just use 2 cups of veggies (or any toppings) and 1 cup of cheese. It's the perfect thing to keep your hanger (hunger + anger) in control.
