No matter where you are on your keto journey you have probably discovered one thing: it takes a bit of work to stay on track. There are so many quick and easy meal or snack options that are high in carbs, and it can be very easy to fall off the wagon.
However, with a bit of planning and preparation you can still enjoy delicious meals and keep your carb intake down.

How Do You Make Bacon Egg and Cheese Muffins?
This grab-and-go breakfast comes together easily and makes a pretty big batch without a ton of work!
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- Mix all ingredients in a medium-sized bowl.
- After well combined, let the mixture sit for 5 minutes so that the coconut flour can absorb the moisture.
- Spray a mini muffin pan (I recommend a silicone muffin pan) and fill each cup until each is about 3/4 full.
- Bake 15-18 minutes until golden brown and cooked through. Let cool slightly before popping out of the pan.
