Vegan Chickpea Flour Frittata Muffins

January 20, 2021
In my last recipe I mentioned how chickpea flour is my new favorite replacement for egg. I used it as a coating for French toast and the taste was so similar to real eggs that I decided to make another dish with it. I am not a fan of tofu, so this discovery was revolutionary to me. These frittata muffins are beyond easy to make and they’re perfect to serve for brunch. They contain heaps of B12 for energy as well as fiber and protein, making them a healthy start to the day. They can also be stored in the fridge or freezer and quickly reheated if you want to make them ahead of time or use them as food prep for the week.

I made these frittatas with whatever veggies I had on hand and you can do the same. I suggest adding broccoli, tomatoes, or even a diced meat substitute. These can be served alongside some greens and toast or enjoyed by themselves. If you want a more classic frittata, you could pour the finished batter into a greased cast iron pan and bake it in that instead of using a muffin tin.
