Clean Eating Prep ahead Eggs and Pancakes!!!

This is what I call the “cook ahead” egg and veggie cups. When you are in a hurry in the morning and if you are like me the morning is pretty crazy with two boys so this is a great option to make the day before. Usually my husband is running out the door and it will grab one of these!!

Simply spray a muffin pan with olive oil cooking spray ( or wipe down each cup with Olive Oil , crack an egg into the cup, add seasoning ( a dash of hot sauce,  salt & pepper, onion powder… ) and a few bits of leftover vegetables. In this case, leftover spinach. If you like, you can use a plastic fork to slightly scramble each egg in the cup.
These are so easy and amazing. Try them at your home. Sometimes my kids get picky about the spinach so I will do half regular eggs for my son Will. My other son John is SUPER picky so for him I will do half and egg and some banana and make it more like a pancake!!
