Turkey Muffin Recipe


These little muffins are perfect for when you’re on the go, breakfast, or for a pre-workout snack. They’re packed with protein, gluten-free oats, and healthy vegetables. When I’m in a rush and have very little time to eat something, I’ll usually have a batch of these made and stored away for the week in my fridge. This recipe yields about 16 muffins.

Servings: 16 muffins

Per muffin:

86.5 calories

3 g fat

5 g carbs

9 g protein

Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit (218 Celsius)

Bake for ~ 40 minutes


2 lbs. Lean ground turkey

1 cup Ground Gluten-Free Oats

4 eggs

1 cup Bell peppers

1/2 cup white onion

2 celery stalks

2 scallions

1 teaspoon salt

2 Tablespoons Garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon cumin

1 teaspoon Red crushed peppers

1 teaspoon black pepper

2 Tablespoons Weber’s All-Natural Gluten Free BBQ Sauce (optional)

Chop all your vegetables. I like to use a vegetable press. It cuts my chopping time by more than half the time, and not to mention saves me the hassle of dealing with those pesky onions. No tears for this girl.

Gluten Free Oats

Throw the oats into a small blender so it becomes Oat Flour

    Hope you like it, it’s very easy to make…and such a relief when I come home and need a quick snack :)

    Np! In the states, Publix carries them, but I know that’s not available in Canada. Try a big chain store in your area or a specialty health food store should have them :)
