  • 4 eggs

  1. Preheat the Oven: Begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Prepare Broccoli: Chop the raw broccoli florets into small, bite-sized pieces. This ensures that the broccoli integrates seamlessly into the muffins.

  5. Bake to Perfection: Place the mini muffin tin in the preheated oven and bake for approximately 15 minutes or until the tops are golden brown, and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  6. Serve and Enjoy: Once baked, allow the Broccoli Egg Bites to cool for a few minutes before serving. These bite-sized wonders are perfect for little hands and can be enjoyed as a snack or part of a meal.
