Bacon & Chive Egg Muffins
“If savory snacks are your favorite, you’ll love these Bacon & Chive Egg Mu ns! They’re packed with protein from eggs, cottage cheese, and bacon (!!), and the chives add an extra burst of flavor. These are so easy to make ahead of time – and only require one bowl! Simply prepare a batch, store in the refrigerator, and reheat after your workout or just eat cold like I do!”
