For how many? Serves 6 (2 muffins per serving)


  • 10 ounces frozen spinach
  • 6 large eggs
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ tsp coconut oil
  • ½ large white onion, chopped


Preheat the oven to 350°F. Defrost the spinach in the microwave and drain well, or soak a bag in warm water until defrosted.

In a large bowl, whisk the eggs together and add the salt and pepper. Set aside.

In a pan, heat the coconut oil and sauté the onion until translucent, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from the heat. Add the onion and spinach to the eggs and mix well.

Spoon the mixture into a twelve-compartment nonstick or greased muffin tin and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the eggs are cooked through.
