Cottage Cheese-Egg Muffins (Wheat flour,Mushrooms & Healthy Savory Breakfast Choice)

Each day morning demands something new and refreshing to keep you going the whole day.But an unhealthy breakfast is equivalent to starving and increases loads on your fat.Kids are the main pranky ones with whom its very difficult to satisfy all nutritional demands; some don't like milk,some don't want chapathis,some may not eat hard boiled eggs,some may not like bread and so on.I too have two of them here,and so I always have to find newer ways not only for kids but also for us too..And a breakfast,I truly desire is a very healthy one that can give us the required good calories.And so in search of a healthy breakfast,I found this and its easy to prepare the previous day for working moms and also I think meets many of the nutritional aspects.Cottage cheese,eggs,mushroms,whole wheat,butterless,sugarless,very less oil  and what else do you wish for a perfect breakfast?? Yes..A true healthy one !!!




At first,my kids were very reluctant to eat them by the looks but then when they tasted it ...aha..it tastes egg..hmm,they like scrambled eggs,so they were happy to find the similar taste in these muffins(as the flour content is just 1/4cup).They just competed one another and gobbled up.My hubby too like this idea of sneaking cottage cheese,eggs,mushrooms,wheat flour all in one go.And above all,my work became quite easier to just scoop and bake.So friends,enjoy the delicious breakfast muffins or as tea time snack!!
