- Beat eggs in a bowl and adding milk.
- Add zucchini, tomatoes and cooled bacon to egg and mix.

- Using a 1/4 measuring cup it will divide mixture up into the 12 muffin pans evenly, do not fill all the way to the top, as they will rise slightly when cooking.
- Bake in oven for approx 25mins until risen and golden brown.
- Remove from oven sit for 5 mins to cool, then remove from baking tray and allow to cool on cooling rack.
I didn’t have any but you could also add some spinach to these to also get some iron.
My normal pre 5:2 recipe I would have added some tasty cheese or even feta. But as I am revamping my old recipes and I wanted to reduce the calories as much as possible to a very low calorie sustainable snack (not meal), I left the cheese out. This is because I still wanted to retain as many calories as I could for dinner.
These are so full of protein and great for a snack on the go. You can store them in an air tight container (love my zip lock bags or you can use Tupperware) in the fridge for about a week.
To reheat, just stick them in the microwave for about 30 seconds.
They taste so good alone, or you could also warm them up and toss them through a salad for something a bit more substantial. Or on a non fast day, have them in a sandwich with some cheese – they are finger licking good.
That is 3 recipes up this week… I have well exceeded 1 recipe a week challenge. I hope all of my support group friends who have requested that I post this – enjoy.
Once you have made your own comment below and let me know how they are, and if you added anything extra. I think even some cayenne pepper would be nice, or even sweet chilli might be nice added to the mixture.
