Number of servings
1⁄3 olive oil spray
133 1⁄3g lean bacon
1⁄3 cup (45g) self-raising flour (or gluten free)
1⁄8 cup (16 2⁄3g) rolled oats (or brown rice flakes or quinoa flakes if gluten free)
1⁄3 tsp baking powder
1⁄3 cup (13 1⁄3g) baby spinach leaves shredded
1 spring onion sliced
1⁄8 cup (20g) parmesan grated
salt & pepper, to taste
1 2⁄3 large eggs
1⁄8 cup (42ml) milk, reduced fat (or dairy-free alternative)
Preheat oven to 180°C/fan 160°C/gas 4. Spray a standard 12-hole (1/3 cup capacity) silicone muffin tray or muffin tin with oil.
Cut 6 strips of bacon to place around the edge of each muffin hole and roughly chop the remainder.
Whisk flour, oats and baking powder together in a large bowl.
Stir through spinach, spring onion and cheese (saving a little to scatter over the top), three-quarters of the diced bacon and season with salt and pepper.
In a separate bowl, whisk eggs and milk together and stir through the dry mixture to combine.
Divide mixture evenly between prepared muffin tray and top with reserved bacon and cheese.
Bake for 18-20 minutes or until lightly browned and a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.
Cool for 5 minutes before removing from the tray.
Cool completely before storing refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 4 days or freeze for up to 2 months.
TIP: If not using a silicone muffin tray, it's best to line your metal one with paper liners to make sure they are easier to remove.
