These 31 sweet and savory muffin tin meals are easy to whip up and can be eaten on the go!
In our fast-paced lives, the thing that makes it hardest to eat Paleo is often lack of time to make healthy food. Sometimes you just don’t have time to chop veggies, brown meat, bake sweet potatoes, or grill some steaks.
So how can we eat healthy in these situations? A muffin tin comes to the rescue!
Egg muffins, breakfast biscuit cups, and mini meatball snacks are just a few ways that you can create healthy make-ahead meals easily using a muffin tin. We’ve also included our favorite sweet desserts you can whip up for a crowd. It’s easy to make muffin tin meals with ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen!
Many of these muffin tin recipes can be made and frozen to thaw when ready to eat. They can even be made in a mini muffin tin for Paleo appetizers! Serve these recipes at a fancy dinner or brunch; they’re that good!
