Easy Quiche Muffins (Keto, Paleo, Nut Free)
It’s not everyday I envision a paleo and keto friendly pie-esque recipe that turns out PERFECT the first try. I’d say it’s cause for celebration! These mini keto quiches are to die for. Delicious, packed with veggies, fiber and sating fats! Make a dozen of these over the weekend and have your first meal at the ready all week!
First you cook some bacon up in a skillet. When it’s crispy you remove the bacon from the skillet and throw in a bag of veggie slaw. I like this one:
Sprinkle in a little salt and cover it. Stir it every 3 minutes for about 10 minutes. While that cooks make your dough.
In a small bowl mix together the coconut flour, flax meal and softened butter or ghee. Add in the cold water. Shape a ball. Put it in the fridge. (YES, easy AF keto/ paleo pie crust, you’re welcome).
By now he veggies are done. Take them off the heat, and put them on a plate to cool with the bacon.
Whisk together you eggs, coconut milk and seasonings. Line a muffin tin with muffin liners and lightly spray with coconut oil.
Grab your dough ball. Break off little chunks of it and flatten it to the bottom of the muffin tins. I use about 1/2 inch pieces and use my finger tips to mush it down. Bake those for 5 minutes.
Mix the bacon and veggies with the eggs. Spoon into the muffin tins and bake them up to breakfast gold.

They’re also versatile! Use which ever combination of veggies you have on hand. Use ham or chicken, sausage or ground beef. Make them your own. I promise these little keto quiches will be a staple in your home. Even your grain eating friends will love these people!
