Welcome to my Whole 30 Airfryer breakfast muffins recipe. Delicious breakfast muffins loaded with spare vegetables and perfect for a quick start to the day without having to reach for the high carb alternatives.
I hate breakfast. I have never wanted to eat when I get up and I have always found breakfast to be pointless. The idea that you start the day on something filling has never really impressed me.
This is also possibly why there are very few breakfast recipes here on RecipeThis.com.
But I think part of this is my upbringing. Parents that were on a diet most of the time when I was growing up. My dad might have had some toast or a sugary cereal and I don’t recall my mum having breakfast much if at all.
I would have some high fibre cereal with some sliced banana and I was happy with that. But it really didn’t bother me if I didn’t get any at all. It was no big deal and I really didn’t care.
Then as I hit 16 and could choose what I ate or didn’t eat I would very rarely have any breakfast and would start the day with some lunch at lunch time. I was fine with this and it became normal life.
Then fast forward into my 30’s and I realised that if I ate breakfast it made me feel so much better. I no longer ate between meals and the energy it gave me in a morning was fantastic.
So for day 5 of my Whole 30 and christening my brand new Philips XL airfryer I make these delicious breakfast Airfryer muffins. You can load them with whatever spare vegetables you have leftover and then serve them up for breakfast.
Though of course you could also use them as a snack or for work or for picnics.#Whole30 #Airfryer Breakfast Muffins Recipe @recipe_thisClick To Tweet
In a mixing bowl add your cooked leftover vegetables.
In a blender whizz the plain granola until it resembles breadcrumbs.
Add the coconut milk and the granola to your vegetables and add the seasoning.
Mix well and make into balls.
Cook in the Airfryer for 20 minutes at 180c.
This is a great alternative to stuffing for your Whole 30 casseroles or for having as an bite sized energy kick. I also love it for using up the leftover vegetables that you might have.
When you make these you can mix up which vegetables you use based on what you have left over. But make sure you don’t just use high water vegetables such as courgettes as they can make it rather runny.
Whole 30 Day 5
I am back with my day 5 on the Whole 30. Last night I had my first dream about food. This is something that have to expect on the Whole 30 especially for foods that you are craving and are no longer getting.
I dreamed that I was in charge of carrying this giant birthday cake and I wonder if anyone would notice if I took a bite? And then my dream was woken up to my baby moaning in his cot!
I am sure the dreams will get worse until I am actually eating chocolate in my dreams!
What I ATE On Day FIVE Of The Whole 30
For breakfast we had some of these delicious fritters. They are breakfast heaven, you could even mix them up the night before and then just place them in the Airfryer just as you go in the shower.
Today I had sweet potato hash in the Airfryer for lunch. Loaded with fresh vegetables and sweet potatoes and seasoned well + a bit of olive oil makes this an excellent quick lunch.
Then for dinner we had a homemade Thai Chicken Curry. It’s a lovely quick supper and perfect for if you are feeling the need for comfort food. Though if you are into Whole 30 for weight loss then it is probably not a great idea thanks to the high calories of the coconut milk.
Breakfast = Veggie Fritters
Lunch = Sweet Potato Hash
Dinner = Warm Chicken Salad
Exercise = 5km Country Walk/Run

Low FODMap Granola
Each day over the last 4 days we have featured a granola. We have loved them so much we have featured the plain one for a second time today. But I am sure what most of you want to know is why Granola and what on earth is the low FODMAP.
Well this infographic about the Low FODMAP sums it all up perfectly:
And if you have read my recipes over the last 4 days you will know that we have featured the low FODMAP granola range each day. They also have a really good newsletter for people that are starting out on the low food map diet. As well as this on their website you can buy the whole range.
